Schmekle: Revolutionary Trans-Core, Jewish, Punk Rock Band

by Rachel Rabbit White

Schmekel is Yiddish for "little penis" and seems to be the perfect name for a “100 percent transgender, 100 percent Jewish” punk band that doesn't take itself too seriously. The band’s parody punk rock is made for fun but the end result is an act that crosses boundaries and reaches beyond the queer audience you'd expect.
