"Here's another attempt at a love letter to my younger self...". 

A trans man and his idealized cis self invite onlookers to a very brave thing on the best day, the most perfect day ever. They have made you a meditation – no, a paint night – actually, no, a rumble – anything to finally get it right this time.

Featuring Geoffrey Simon Brown; returning to the High Performance Rodeo after the 2020 sold-out production of Major Matt Mason's Premium Content and Émanuel Dubbeldam who stars in CBC's ONIVA!
