Sharon McGowan salutes the work of Vancouver artist Rosamond Norbury in this edgy and humorous documentary. As a photographer, Norbury is fully intrenched in the communities of her subjects—be they rodeo cowboys, drag queens or women who explore their male alter egos as they are transformed into bearded ladies for Norbury’s photo exhibition "Random Acts of Queerness" in Vancouver’s Queer Arts Festival.

The artist fondly recalls her dad, “the original drag queen,” and pulls back the curtain on omnisexuality and gender fluidity manifest in relationships and through her performances. Norbury explores her alter egos--Rod Bush” (greaser gay boy) and Rose Bush (flourishing queen). As she shifts the phallocentric culture of photography to new territory, Vancouver curators Keith Wallace and Glen Alteen comment on the delightful unpredictability of Norbury’s art practice.
