Summary
Traces the intersections of global movement with transgender and queer identities from authors and artists of this Hispanic Caribbean. utilizing the theme of fluidity and travel, this work analyzes novels, graphic novels, theater, and performance art. These works demonstrate how transgender and queer bodies redefine belonging, particularly national belonging, through global movement and community making practices. Through these genres, the text follows the movement of transgender and queer identities from textual spaces to spaces of the body. The gradual movement from text to body - as it occurs in these genres - demonstrates the variety of representational strategies that dismantle binary readings of gender, sexuality, and nationality. Transgender visibility is a pressing social issue, and today's transgender movement will be a social and political necessity for years to come. Of particular importance are representations of transgender and/or queer people of color. the field of transgender representation is growing, and this book adds to the visibility of transgender and queer identity from the Hispanic Caribbean. by investigating the relationship between novels, graphic novels, theater, and performance art, this work emphasizes how each work plays on and against the separation of language and the body, and how Hispanic Caribbean authors and artists represent transgender and queer identity in order to redefine cultural and national belonging in various geographic spaces
