    SHORTS: Stonewall and Queer Pop Culture (with Matt Baume)

    SHORTS: Stonewall and Queer Pop Culture (with Matt Baume)

    This week, as a supplement to our episode on Stonewall, we had the incomparable Matt Baume on to talk to us about queer representation both before and after the Stonewall riots. Join us as we learn about the history of queer portrayals in media, from anti-gay propaganda films up to that time Archie Bunker met a trans woman

    Stonewall

    Stonewall

    This week, because it's Pride Month, we talked about the 2015 movie Stonewall, the movie that asked, what if we took a real event and replaced almost all the black people in it with one bland white dude? Also, they throw in a little fem shaming and a weird third act kidnapping,

    Topics discussed:


    The Corndog Killer
    How to hide your porn
    Gay directors making gay movies for straight people
    Mercifully we DON'T talk about kink at Pride discourse
    Is J. Edgar Hoover in this movie?

    Hold Your Peace

    Hold Your Peace

    This week, Chris texted the group while drunk on a Wednesday at 12:30am and said "guys we NEED to do the 2011 movie Hold Your Peace. The movie is super boring, it's about a guy who's trying to break up his ex's wedding. But the bachelor party scene is incredible!" (There were a lot more spelling errors in the text, but we sheltered you from that) Was Chris right? Was the bachelor party incredible, or merely deeply upsetting? Let's find out!

    Topics discussed:


    The rules of King's Cup
    MLM sex toy parties
    Straight Simpson's incest porn pop-ups on gay websites
    Twink shaming
    What's the sluttiest kind of clothing and why is it a tuxedo?

    Kept Boy

    Kept Boy

    Sorry it's late! Chris decided to eat at a disreputable but delicious teriyaki place and then be bedridden for 3 days with the worst case of food poisoning he's ever had, but this week, we watched the 2017 movie Kept Boy. When an aging sugar baby feels his boyfriend falling for the pool boy, he tries to win him back through trickery. But is it really him who's being tricked? Or the audience, by the most ridiculous twist ending we've ever seen?

    Also, will this experience teach Chris anything about being more selective about where he eats? Probably not

    Topics discussed:


    Chris describes more of the gay porno "Boy Band"
    That time when Elon Musk injecting twink blood
    Tom Bombadil but gay
    Scheme, heists, capers and hijinx
    The sexual preferences of owls

    B&B

    B&B

    This week, the very funny and excellent Duncan Robertson (author of Visegrad: A Novel) joined us to talk about the 2017 film B&B. When husbands Marc and Fred return to the B&B they were kicked out of one year ago for being gay, they find themselves embroiled in a murder plot so weird that even after talking about it for several hours, we're still a little hazy on the details. Will they survive the night? Is that hot Russian gangster there to kill them or bang them? What kind of a B&B doesn't have wifi and why would anyone stay there? Let's find out!

    Topics discussed:


    The national sport of dogging
    Dad dick
    Label makers
    How many drinks would it take to turn a guy gay?
    The Chuck Tingle Tabletop Roleplaying Game

    Death Drop Gorgeous

    Death Drop Gorgeous

    This week, we watched the 2020 movie Death Drop Gorgeous. Not to confused with that other movie with a similar name, this one is about a slasher stalking the streets of gay Providence, RI. Can the case be solved by a down on his luck bartender, or an aging drag queen, or a pair of detectives one of whom looks like he's a literal baby? Or is one of the aforementioned people secretly the killer? Let's find out!

    Topics discussed:


    That episode of Star Trek where they all get horny for each other
    Shaving pubic hair
    Glory holes and what might be behind them
    Chris Describes a Porno
    Way too much Drag Race talk even for us

The Gay Powerpuffs of reading gay movies

Love you guys, you always make me laugh. Chris Blossom wrangling the crew to stay on topic, the quiet Drew Bubbles with his little quips and the aggressive Eric Buttercup who has no right to be as funny as he is. Keep up the good work, I’ll also make a donation to the rainbow railroad in your honour. Cheers, Leon
