Bruce LaBruce

Bruce LaBruce (he|him), (b.1964) is a Canadian artist, writer, filmmaker, photographer, and underground director based in Toronto.


He first gained public attention with the publication of the queer punk zine J.D.s and he has written and photographed for a variety of publications including Vice.

His movie 'Otto; or up with dead people' debuted at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival; while his 'LA Zombie' was banned from the Melbourne International Film Festival.

LaBruce's filmmaking style is marked by a blend of explicitly pornographic depictions of sex with more conventional narrative and filmmaking techniques, as well as an interest in extreme topics which mainstream audiences might dismiss as shocking or disturbing taboos. His films have depicted scenes of sexual fetish and paraphilia, BDSM, gang rape, racially-motivated violence, amputee fetishism, gerontrophilia, male and female prostitution, twincest, and zombie and vampire sexuality.
