with director Madsen Minax in person (free admission)

Madsen Minax

Riot Acts is a ‘trans-fabulous’ rockumentary representing the multi-faceted lives of transgender and gender variant musicians. A first-hand perspective of the intersections between gender performance and stage performance, Riot Acts suggests that identities and bodies are undeniably political, and the journey within a trans experience isn't always one of tragedy, but one of creativity and joy.

Featured interviewees include Anderson Toone, Lipstick Conspiracy, Katastrophe and Trannysaurus Sex (San Francisco), Basic Fix (Portland), Ryder Richardson (Seattle), Tough Tough Skin, and Venus Demars (Minneapolis), Adhamh Roland (St. Louis), Ryka Aoki De La Cruz (Los Angeles), Jessica Xavier (Washington, DC), The Shondes and Novice Theory (Brooklyn, NY), The Degenerettes (Baltimore), Systyr Act (Boston), The Cliks (Toronto), and Coyote Grace (Sonoma County, CA).

Cosponsored with the LGBT Resource Center and FGSS.
