A subculture rooted in the counter-cultural, and queer-inclusive self-expressions emerging from the underground club scene of the 1980s-1990s, particularly in New York City and other urban centers. Often characterized by bright, flamboyant clothing, make-up, and hair styles that break normative gender expectations.
