“Our Piece of Punk – A queer_feminist view on the cake” is as a book of 160 pages, in german and english, including drawings, comics, written contributions, discussions and declarations of love about the possiblilites and boundaries of queer feminism in punk. It’s not focussing on ,once upon a time…’ and Riot Grrrl-Nostalgia: Protagonists who currently love and live punk & DIY with all its ups and downs, get to talk and speak up. Most of the meanwhile numerous books, focussing on feminism in punk, talk about protagonists and icons of the 70ies punkscene or portrait the Riot Grrrl movement in the early 90ies, as the measure for punk rock feminism. But what happened after that period? Punk is ultimately not dead – some say so
at least – and up to this days critical voices aren’t absent talking racism, sexism, homo- and trans*phobia in the punkscene. It’s time to go on with these discussions, instead of letting them rest in
resentment.
