Before riot grrls in the USA, there were the rebel dykes in the UK. This documentary follows a group of combat-boot-wearing punk queer women from their initial meeting at Greenham Common Peace Camp and through their friendships in 1980s London, ground zero of punk rock. These working-class women created safe spaces for trans-inclusive, kink-aware, multiracial feminism as they cruised the underground S/M scene by night and took up AIDS activism and the fight against anti-LGBTQ legislation by day. Blending archival footage, personal interviews, and animation, this must-see documentary is a major entry in the archive of lesbian history.
