Queercore (or Homocore) is a cultural and social movement that began in the mid-1980s as an offshoot of punk. It is distinguished by its discontent with society in general, and specifically society’s disapproval of the gay, bisexual, lesbian and transgendercommunities. Queercore expresses itself in a DIY style through zines, music, writing, art and film.
As a musical genre, it may be distinguished by lyrics exploring themes of prejudice and dealing with issues such as sexual identity,gender identity and the rights of the individual; more generally bands offer a critique of society endemic to their position within it, sometimes in a light-hearted way, sometimes seriously. Musically, many queercore bands originated in the punk scene but theindustrial music culture has been influential as well. Queercore groups encompass many genres such as hardcore punk, synthpunk,indie rock, power pop, No Wave, noise, experimental, industrial and others.
