Weird. A Chilean gay story

Óscar Contardo

NON FICTION. PLANETA, 2011. 404 PAGES.

This is a weird book, a book about a weird topic which tries to see what is left behind the official story. This is not a book about a minority, an isolated group. This is the reflection of a majority lifestyle.

The well-known journalist Óscar Contardo surprises us with a story about homosexuality in Chile. His particular view comes from a deep investigation that could be summed up as: sodomite, queer, inverted, homosexual, gay. Each word not only represents a human being, also a period in history and a particular distribution of power.WEIRD travels through scenes and periods that go from the Spanish conquerors until the 21st Century. WEIRD is a historical report about violence, shame and fear.
