Brujos Profiles

These Chicago Brujos have a past you should read into


If Brian knew responding to a Craiglist ad for a room in a house full of gay Latinos meant joining a coven —andalmost dying a bunch— he totally wouldn’t have. As the witch-hunt intensifies, he’ll find himself less on Grindr and reading queer theory books to increasingly study the spells of Yoruba, Santería, Hoodoo and Brujería. Brian will learn that there is more to life than reading Foucault, hooking up and throwing shade like a character on “RuPaul’s Drag Race.” (Or is there?)
