The introduction locates the editors’ shared political investments in the activist work of Sylvia Rivera and Marsha P. Johnson, explaining that the book stages a dialogue between queer black and brown performance works and critical traditions. The editors explicate the project’s key terms—“blacktino,” “queer,” and “performance”—and provide an overview of the play scripts, essays, and interviews featured in the collection.
