Notes

Description
Out in the desert in a place called the Palace, a young man tends to Juan Gay. Juan has a project to pass along, one built around a true artifact of a book, Sex Variants: A Study of Homosexual Patterns, and its devastating history. This book contains accounts collected in the early twentieth century from queer subjects by a queer researcher, Jan Gay. The voices of these subjects have been filtered, muted, but it is possible to hear them from within and beyond the text, which, in Juan's tattered volumes, has been redacted with black marker on nearly every page. Juan and the narrator recount for each other moments of joy and oblivion; they resurrect loves, lives, mothers, fathers, minor heroes. In telling their own stories and the story of the book, they resist the ravages of memory and time.
