Andalusia and the Phallic Woman in Plumas de España

(p.33) Chapter 3 The New Safita
Crossing through Chueca

Women, even though their rhetoric was casted out from the Spanish literary culture, became the inspiration of gay males during the post-Franco regime. Gay males simulated femininity during their Spanish drag performances and striptease, eventually indicating the rise of the Andalusian woman. The Andalusian woman is a transvestite and a transsexual embodying gay pride. This chapter examines Ana Rossetti’s novel Plumas de España as it typifies the absence of the Andalusian woman from Spanish literary politics and the popular imagination. Plumas de España is a product of gay imagination as it depicts the outright unacceptance of the Andalusian women within Spanish society during and after the Franco regime.
