About Rebels Queers

Before the full-scale invasion, subversive collective Rebel Queers would defy the heteronormative and patriarchal world by scrawling on the walls of Kyiv: ‘Queer Sex,’ ‘Make Queer Punk Again'. Today, they are focusing on creating short films to support queer people in the Ukrainian army.
