Focused at the intimate results of large-scale monetary ameliorations, After Love illuminates the ways in which daily efforts to visualize, withstand, and enact industry reforms form sexual wants and subjectivities. Anthropologist Noelle M. Stout arrived in Havana in 2002 to check the generally publicized emergence of homosexual tolerance in Cuba yet came upon that the intercourse exchange used to be dominating daily discussions between gays, lesbians, and travestis. mostly eliminated after the Revolution, intercourse paintings, together with same-sex prostitution, exploded in Havana whilst the island was once opened to overseas tourism within the early Nineties. The booming intercourse exchange ended in unparalleled encounters among Cuban gays and lesbians, and instantly male intercourse employees and international travelers. As many homosexual Cuban males of their thirties and forties deserted relationships with different homosexual males in want of intimacies with directly male intercourse employees, those bonds advanced principles approximately "true love" for queer Cubans at huge. From brazenly homophobic hustlers having intercourse with city gays for room and board, to lesbians disparaging intercourse staff yet starting up relationships with overseas males for cash, to homosexual travelers espousing communist rhetoric whereas handing out Calvin Klein bikini briefs, the moving financial terrain raised primary questions on the bounds among exertions and love in late-socialist Cuba.
