counterculture

is a subculture whose values and norms of behavior differ substantially from those of mainstream society, often in opposition to mainstream cultural mores.

Explicitly political

Counterculture may or may not be explicitly political. It typically involves criticism or rejection of currently powerful institutions, with accompanying hope for a better life or a new society.

In the United States, the movement divided the population. To some Americans, these attributes reflected American ideals of free speach, equality, world peace, and the pursuit of happiness

Lesbian, gay, bisexual & transgender counterculture
