New Documentary ‘Rebel Dykes of London’ Is On It’s Way

Before there were queer activists, before there were Riot Grrls, there were the Rebel Dykes of London. They were young, they were feminists, they were anarchists, they were punks, and they were the first generation of sex positive outlaw women, and nothing has been quite the same since.

You won’t find out much about them in the history books, but now a new feature length documentary is set to tell their story. Produced by Siobhan Fahey, an original rebel dyke, and co-directed by Sian Williams and Harri Shanahan, the trailer was released this week – and it looks fantastic.

Fahey explains

This documentary film is being made because the history of the London Rebel Dykes of the 1980s is in danger of being forgotten. Rebel dykes created their own world, made their own rules, and refused to be ignored. We can’t let history tidy them away.”

Described as a labour of love, the film has been made with no budget.

We are doing this in our own time on top of work and bands and lovers and life. It is being created in DIY style, with huge support from an online community of 200+ Rebel Dykes.”
