Worried that queer art has become too mainstream? Too safe? Miss Rosewood is here to push the envelope and remind us how intense and explicit queer art can be. Hailing from New York City, she is one of the only trans women performers at The Box, the Lower East Side’s legendary and controversial theatre nightclub frequented by celebrities like Rihanna and Leonardo DiCaprio (Miss Rosewood may have emptied a condom onto Leonardo DiCaprio’s head during a show).
A mixture of performance footage, documentation of her gender-affirming journey, and candid interviews with family and friends, make Miss Rosewood a well-rounded and riveting documentary.
