Bruce LaBruce is a filmmaker, writer and photographer based in Toronto. The artist works with stereotypes such as skinheads, punks and sadomasochistic scenes in a pornographic context as a metaphor to reflect on the sexism still present in contemporary society.

The artist has written and directed ten feature films – many winning awards – and has been honoured with film retrospectives at both TIFF/Bell Lightbox in 2014, and at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 2015.
