Abstract

An examination of gendered and relational bodies in public spaces. The work articulates a politics of gendered experience in cultural context, offering an analysis of genderqueer anxiety and performativity. The chapter argues that the everyday experience of body scanning as a process of entry into airports and other 'secure' areas both overly and inadvertently categories and marginalises gender outlaws.
