we're queer rockers in your face today!

Queercore is a sub-genre overlapping Punk Rock and Post-Punk originating in The '80s which focuses on LGBT themes, especially sex and romance among homosexuals, cultural values, and intolerance towards LGBTI persons. While not all punk or post-punk bands that work with such themes consider themselves 'queercore', there have been several bands that have taken that moniker willingly.
