Homocult were radical queer art duo based in Hulme.
The provided visuals for Lucy Scher’s pre-Flesh gay house night, 'Attitude', and also the first few Flesh outings.
Their work reclaimed lots of words such as 'faggot’ 'queer’ and 'dyke'.
Although Homocult parted company with Flesh very quickly (describing it as a night for ‘career gays’), their confrontational use of language had a direct influence on the way the night was promoted, which ultimately fed into the pride-based rhetoric of 'Gaychester.’
