SYNOPSIS: What happens when the community you need is not the community you have? In the mid-1980s, two 20-year-old punks, Bruce LaBruce and GB Jones, created a movement known as Homocore, later known as Queercore. Unhappy with the Gay Rights Movement’s conformist thrust and the aggressiveness of punk, they decided to create their own revolution from their bedrooms. The radical gay farce spread to film, music, zines, performance and activism, and became a rebellious international underground movement.
