A tribute to the pioneering scholar E. Antonio (Tony) Yaguarix De Moya, this essay celebrates De Moya’s contributions to the study of sexuality and marginality in Dominican society by dwelling on key aspects of his scholarly output in this field in combination with the authors’ memories of dialogue and mentorship by the recently departed elder.
