QUEERCORE: HOW TO PUNK A REVOLUTION
Saturday, October 19
(2017, DVD, 83m) dir Yony Leyser. 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. Collaborator: East Lake Library and funded by Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
