About:
An entertaining cultural history of the development and influence of the queer punk scene.

I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
In the mid-1980s, Bruce LaBruce and GB Jones, a pair of young Canadians, introduced the world to the burgeoning Toronto queer punk scene through homemade zines and scrappy films. In this pre-Internet era, there was no way of knowing that queercore consisted of just two people. Soon enough, their subversive creation spread beyond their bedrooms to attract actual adherents, spawning a radical underground subculture that challenged both the mainstream gay and homophobic punk scenes.
