'Femme Cowboy'

Through an expanded understanding of the vaquero, this film navigates the duality of the

rodeo clown's forced femininity. Through drag and performativity the vaquero character is a

reflection of the artist's trans and queer self, as they navigate their ancestry, gender

performance and expression through the landscapes of their Mexican heritage. This film

examines how gender performance and gender expression can be influenced by grief,

ancestry, the landscapes of our childhood, pop culture and shared heritage.
