"As a member of the Cuban and queer communities, [the novel 'Before Night Falls'] really spoke to me. The imagery [in the passage about Morro Castle, the notorious Havana prison] of creating what was essentially drag out of prison materials in these harsh conditions, it really spoke to me . The [passage] is about queer people and how we have suffered so much but still manage to have a sense of humor and always have a party." Amy Bravo
