Interviewees discuss homophobia, gender, feminism, AIDS, assimilation, sex, and, of course, art. The extensive participant list includes Bruce LaBruce, G.B. Jones, Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, John Waters, Justin Vivian Bond, Lynn Breedlove, Silas Howard, Pansy Division, Penny Arcade, Kathleen Hanna, Kim Gordon, Deke Elash, Tom Jennings, Team Dresch, and many more. Encompassing a breadth of history and influence, Queercore ends with a glimpse towards Riot Grrl and artists like Peaches and The Gossip, who, inspired by queercore legacy, were next to take the stage.
From its humble beginnings in 2002 as a small birthday party for a few friends, Booty Bassment has grown to become one of California's best rap-based dance clubs. Performing regularly in San Diego, San Francisco, and Orange County, they meld both underground and throwback tracks. Booty Bassment is celebrating their 15th anniversary in August!
