Jack Rabbit is a genderfluid cowboy, bohemian, man-about-town, and general scoundrel. When he's not chasing cows across the Southwest he's pursuing all manner of ill-fated attempts at romance, trying to stay abreast of the latest fashion trends (and making some himself), and indulging in miscellaneous Bacchanalian pastimes.

His lip-synced musical performances range from classic country ballads such as "Save A Horse (Ride A Cowboy)" and "Old Town Road", to reenactments of Marty Robbins songs, to passionate homages to Elton John.

When I worked as a cowboy I was often turned away from jobs or opportunities (directly or indirectly) because I was AFAB. I loved the glory and recklessness of cowboying, and how the men who work as cowboys got to revel in their own strength and self-assuredness. I could do all the work and look the part, but I was never fully allowed to be a cowboy because of my sex. Jack Lope is a fun, goofy, but also very serious way to examine masculinity, gender, and sexuality within cowboying. As semi-fantastical icons of peak American maleness, cowboys are deeply woven into the fabric of the American empire and as such as in vital need of critique and deconstruction.
