Movie Info

Started in the 1980s as a fabricated movement intended to punk the punk scene, Queercore quickly became a real-life cultural community of LGBTQ music and movie-making revolutionaries. From the start of the pseudo-movement to the widespread rise of pop artists who used queer identity to push back against gay assimilation and homophobic punk culture, 'Queercore: How to Punk a Revolution' is just that: a how-to-do-it guide for the next generation of queer radicals. The extensive participant list includes Bruce LaBruce, G.B. Jones, Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, John Waters, Justin Vivian Bond, Lynn Breedlove, Silas Howard, Pansy Division, Penny Arcade, Kathleen Hanna, Kim Gordon, Deke Elash, Tom Jennings, Team Dresch, and many more.

  • Leyser's film is an important document capturing the influence of queercore, an underground movement that enjoys life on the fringes, where identifying as an anti-establishment "arty weirdo" is just as important as sexuality.

  • Goes beyond cultural anthropology, exploring how queer activism briefly allied itself to the punk movement before becoming its own movement with the gay liberation movement.

  • Marked by endless strangely humourless and self-important philosophizing... the doc drags.
