Queer Mutiny was a UK anarchist Queer (anarcha-queer) organisation. There were branches in Edinburgh, London, Brighton, Bristol, Cardiff and Leeds.


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.
