Resumen: This paper's goal is to reflect, however briefly, on the image of the transvestite in the novel Sirena Selena vestida de pena, by Puerto Rican author Mayra Montero-Febres. The paper analyzes how crossdressing functions as a metaphor to encompass the ambiguities of the Associated Free State, which has been describen by several critics as a "postcolonial colony," where identity and everything "light" is up to sale. By placing the narrative in the Dominican Republic, Santos extends the Puerto Rican colonia experience into a diasporic experience within the Caribbean, in the "context of desire" and its "First-World cross-dressing" / Transvestism; Postcolonialism.
