Queercore - Liberation Is My Lover

Deutschland 2016/2017 Dokumentarfilm

Summary

Documentary on "Queercore", a trend within the LGBTQ movement initiated by gay filmmaker Bruce LaBruce and lesbian artist G. B. Jones in the 1980s. Born out of the frustration about the marginalization of both the queer and punk scenes, its protagonists openly embraced their homo- and bisexuality. LaBruce and Jones voiced their viewpoints in their magazine "J.D.'s", which was also known for its lurid photos of – often drunk – punks. Director Yony Leyser chronicles the history of the Queercore scene and its impact, which is still evident today. Along with before unseen archival footage and private films of Leyser, the documentary features interviews with Bruce LaBruce and G.B. Jones, as well as with other artists like filmmaker John Waters and musicians Kim Gordon and Peaches.
