The Gay Agenda calls itself a homo riot hardcore punk outfit. Members include David Hurtt (Stalins of Sound), Luis Soraire (who played bass with Temblad before switching to drums), Matt Penning, and Garrett Ficacci. A self-titled EP was released in February 2018. According to Ficacci, "The band was the brainchild of David Hurtt from some years ago, wanting to create heavy punk music while being unapologetically, irreverently, and identifiably queer."
Their album Penetrating was released in June 2020 via La Escalera Records, preceded by a single for “Homo Riot” featuring Justin Pearson, of the Locust, Retox, and Dead Cross.
