Fijian Males at the Crossroads of Gender and Ethnicity in a Fiji Secondary School

Carmen M. White

This article explores how two transgendered Fijian males navigate the intersections of sex, gender, and ethnicity or “race” in a Fiji secondary school. Their experiences illustrate, on the one hand, the negotiability of a transgendered category in Fiji. On the other hand, there is the potential for transgendered identity to open spaces for engagement with non-Fijian ethnic markers in the face of essentialist discursive practices on ethnicity. The case study shows the individualized ways that two transgendered males negotiate and challenge notions of Fijian male authenticity.
