Fais Do Do was an East. L.A. music venue that hosted the final night of Scutterfest 2002, a music festival formed out of the punk rock queer zine Scutter. Scutter was self-published by Chicano queer and Los Angeles native Rudy Bleu, who formed the magazine to create a relatable space for other queer people of the punk rock scene.

The Smell is a famously all-ages LGBT-friendly music venue with a legacy of hosting queercore performers since its opening in 1998. Queercore, not exactly a subgenre of punk, but rather a divergent response to the sexism and homophobia of the punk scene, sought to not only dismantle these prejudices amidst the punk scene but also speak out against the growing conservatism of the gay and lesbian mainstream.
