Long awaited and now in the program of QFFM: the exciting and entertaining documentary about the Rebel Dykes, a group of lesbians who lived in London in the 1980s. It was the time of post-punk – and these women belonged to the UK Post Punk Culture. They campaigned for sexual freedom and self-determination; they occupied houses. The opening of an SM Club in London was on the agenda; since they didn’t like that most dildos looked like penises.

But political activism was not neglected either: when the conservative Thatcher government passed a homophobic law, the Rebel Dykes were at the forefront of the demonstrations.

A wonderful combination of creative and clever animations, archival material and interviews with those who were there at the time
