In the mid-1980s, Bruce LaBruce and GB Jones were searching for a scene that would accept both their punk aesthetic and their radical queer activism. When they couldn't find one, they invented a revolution called homocore (later known as queercore) and pretended it was already happening. Through zines, music, films, performance and activism, the idea grew into a real-life rebellious international movement. Director Yony Leyser (Desire Will Set you Free, MQFF 2016) has created a highly entertaining documentary for fans and the uninitiated. Interviews with Bruce LaBruce, John Waters, Beth Ditto, Kathleen Hanna, Peaches and more take you on a must-see journey from the onset of queercore to the next generation making it their own.
