This essay is a personal reflection on how Horn's scholarship on gender, sexuality, and performance in the hispanophone Caribbean has been shaped by the oeuvre of the late critical theorist José E. Muñoz. In particular, Horn compares and contrasts the uses of “hybridity” and “performance” in Muñoz's work to the work of Antonio Benítez-Rojo, another Cuban/Cuban American scholar who has foregrounded the role of performance in the Caribbean. The author furthermore suggests how Muñoz's later critical work on subjectivity, sexuality, and evidence speaks to queer Dominican cultures, experiences, and epistemologies.
