A musical journey through the glam-days of yesteryear.

Beautifully done with a generous slice of nostalgia.

Lipstick of the Brave represents the animated journey of Madstone Rowan, composer and performer, as they find inspiration in rock and pop music which inspired them to move beyond the gender binary and embrace their non-binary self. Through Bill Plympton’s poignant animation, homage is paid to the songs and artists that lifted Madstone on their journey as the film seeks to connect with the audience in a way that inspires the viewer to see their own sense of personal power as a part of a world that collectively embraces all expressions of gender and sexuality. The animation is set to the music written and sung by Madstone Rowan.
