Ending the Pride Month episodes by going back where I came from.
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.
