Deana McGuffin is a third-generation New Mexico bootmaker, hand-crafting wearable pieces of art. When she is approached by a Canadian artist and a San Francisco tattoo artist to create a gay-themed cowboy boot, a story unravels of a unique collaboration that takes them to the heart of cowboy country in Northern Texas. Bootwmn is a heart-warming, intimate and endearing portrait of the queering of a traditional art form.
