“We were very politically aware, but we were also very naughty!” What better summation of the sexy, gritty, raw-and-rollicking experience of the London late-1980s dyke community, lovingly depicted in Harri Shanahan and Siân Williams’ new documentary Rebel Dykes. From Peace Camps, to the lesbian S&M club Chain Reaction, to the passing of Clause 28, Rebel Dykes cleverly mixes vintage footage, interviews, and animated recreations to illustrate an explosive time of sex, culture, and politics.
