Invoking a Mexican slang term that translates roughly as "white girl," G#65533;era considers how the body's meaning as a racialized, gendered, and sexualized surface shifts as it crosses linguistic and national borders. Gaydos's disarmingly direct addresses slip between the spaces of story and reality, traversing the many meanings of "appearance": not only the physical image and its attendant assumptions, but also the act of arriving or becoming visible. Moving between Los Angeles, Oaxaca, Mexico City, and Talcott, Virginia, G#65533;era traces the way touristic desire, folklore, and stereotype transform the languages we speak and the bodies we inhabit.
