Queercore: How to Punk a Revolution

Queercore: How to Punk a Revolution

In the mid-1980s and ‘90s, a group of queer outsiders dreamt up a punk revolution still making waves to this day. Queercore turned the punk scene on its head by putting butch-dykes and gay skinheads centre stage.

 

Starting out as little more than fiction, the idea soon snowballed to become an international movement of films, bands and zines that gave voice to gender non-conformity, feminism and proudly explicit depictions of queer sex. Bruce LaBruce, G.B. Jones, John Waters, Genesis P. Orridge, Bikini Kill, Pansy Division and many more explain how this DIY movement ultimately expanded into popular culture, influencing everyone from the Gossip to Nirvana, Peaches to Green Day, and even the Spice Girls.

 

Even if you've never heard of Queercore, this sexy trip through LGBTIQ counterculture will have you riveted from whoa to go. This empowering documentary reminds us we can all create our own reality, find our tribe, and need never feel alone.
