Queercore: How to Punk a Revolution
Yony Leyser, U.S., 2017, 83 min.
This lively music documentary explores the various manifestations of Queercore, a cultural and social movement that began as an offshoot of punk and that consistently challenged society's disapproval of the gay, bisexual, lesbian, and transgender communities. 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, and Team Dresch. Those interviewees discuss such topics as homophobia, gender, feminism, AIDS, assimilation, sex, and, of course, art.
