Groups were run independently by members, who were free to take the activities of the group in whatever direction they choose, as organisation was done in an anarcho-syndicalist manner, apart from Edinburgh QueerMutiny who rejected such labels.
Queers of all sexualities met as regularly as they felt fit, to socialise and get active. Queer Mutiny was a DIY collective which aimed to fight prejudice, link up with other campaigns, learn, create alternatives and celebrate what it is to be Queer. They organised skill-sharing workshops, with the hope of empowerment and having fun. They were against hierarchies, capitalism and assimilation.
Queer Mutiny put on a variety of events that didn't revolve around consumption, where people could talk about politics, the planet and things beyond gay life and fashion.
Examples of activities of the groups were: queer self-defence, political activism, musical performance, radical queer walking, alternatives to Pride, zine making, queer presence at EDO demos, dildo-making workshops, queer film nights, discussions about queer identity, critical massing, stencilling, and networking with other radical queers.
