Riot Acts: Flaunting Gender Deviance in Music at 2011 Stella Artois QFest
A trans-fabulous rockumentary, "Riot Acts" provides a firsthand perspective on transgender and gender-variant musicians, capturing their lives with the same complexity that the performers display both on and off the stage. The documentary includes interviews with more than a dozen transgender bands and musical artists and explores not just subjects related to music (songwriting, voice, audiences, and venues) but also broader issues such as body presentation, gender performance, spectacle, media representation, and notions about drag. The film also makes clear that the construction of identities and presentation of bodies are undeniably political acts. Talented, inspiring, and sexy, the individuals and bands featured in "Riot Acts" are presented in a manner that purposefully counters the vision of isolation and destitution frequently found in mainstream-media accounts of the trans experience. Featured performers include Ryka, Anderson Toone, Lipstick Conspiracy, Katastrophe, Trannysaurus Sex, Basic Fix, Ryder Richardson, Tough Tough Skin, Venus Demars, Adhamh Rolan, Jessica Xavier, the Shondes, Novice Theory, the Degenerette, Systyr Act, the Cliks, and Coyote Grace.
