Article about Latino Morrissey fans in the context of an annual Smiths convention in Los Angeles. Klosterman is one of very few authors who directly addresses the issue of race; he writes that the "predictably pasty" Smiths fans of the past were replaced with Latino fans who treated it as a contemporary event, instead of a nostalgic festival of rememberance. He also addresses the issue of Morrissey's sexuality: Klosterman suggests that a religious, machismo culture chooses to ignore Morrissey's presumed homosexuality. The reaction of two Anglo fans at the convention is also mentioned, who accuse Morrissey's new fans of being "too enthusiastic" and express contempt for the Latino fans, a sentiment that is not expressed in any other articles.
