Goes beyond cultural anthropology, exploring how queer activism briefly allied itself to the punk movement before becoming its own movement with the gay liberation movement.

Bruce DeMara, Toronto Star

The film's tilt toward the scene's early days speaks to the endurance of LaBruce and Jones's original concept: they built it, and the punks haven't stopped coming.
