A documentary video about the violent police attack of a peaceful lesbian and gay demonstration, in Montreal in 1990. Going back and forth between archive footage of the violent events and the month-long social gatherings that came out of the police raid on the Sex Garage underground queer party night, Bradley demonstrates the strong and liberating effects of community. If fear and anxiety were apparent during the events, Bradley contrasts them with the confidence and faith that emerged from the demonstrations and general assemblies that occurred during that ill-fated summer. Underlining the relationship between the multiple communities that took part in the protest, We're Here, We're Queer, We're Fabulous is an attempt to reclaim the public sphere stolen by the climate of homophobic violence created by the police.
