Trash & Treasures
About This Show
Welcome to Trash & Treasures! We rescue the movies others throw away.
Join us every two weeks as three weirdos look through the forgotten footnotes of cinema with a queer lens in hand, looking for great movies nobody talks about and the kind of amazing garbage that makes movie nights worth hosting.

Brokeback Mountain (Pride Month) - Ask a Wyoming Native
This movie wants us to believe it's about the Tragedies of Homophobia but weeeeeeee're not so sure. There's about half a dozen movies it could've been to sort through first.
Yeah, that's right. The last episode of Pride Month is The Gay Cowboy Movie. The meme that died and rotted in its grave more than a decade ago. It uh....well, it's a film. It's a pretty accurate portrayal of Wyoming, even, despite mostly filming in Canada. Vrai's a pretty good authority on that point.

June is Pride Month, dear listeners. To celebrate, we'll be bringing you not two but FOUR episodes this month, each an examination of a different way queerness in film has been handled. Some successfully, some....less so.
