Each week in Horror Queers, Joe Lipsett and Trace Thurman tackle a horror film with LGBTQ+ themes, a high camp quotient or both. For these lifelong queer horror fans, there’s as much value in serious discussions about representation as there is in reading a ridiculously silly/fun horror film with a YAS KWEEN mentality. Just know that at no point will we be getting Babashook.

Episode 6 - Dead Ringers (1988)

Joe and Trace dress as $10 hookers and enter uncharted vaginal territory with David Cronenberg's gynaecological horror film Dead Ringers! Listen as Joe schools Trace on all things Canadian horror, including a crash course on the Canadian identity (whatever that means).

Patreon Episode 3 - Velvet Buzzsaw (CLIP)

2/6/2019
More
Happy February! On the first patrons-only bonus episode of the month, the boys are discussing Dan Gilroy's (Nightcrawler) shockingly mediocre killer art satire Velvet Buzzsaw. It's a film that tries to do satire and horror and doesn't really succeed at either. Also, why cast Jake Gyllenhaal as a bisexual man but have him paired with a woman for 95% of its NEAR 2-HOUR RUNTIME?! This episode is for patrons only!

Squeeze into your Speedo because Joe and Trace are getting wet with Swimfan, the “baby Fatal Attraction” wannabe starring America’s 2002 boyfriend, Jesse Bradford, and the far-too-good-for-this-nonsense, Erika Christensen. Join us as we try to unpack the film’s many, MANY plot holes, laugh as Joe explains to Trace how pagers work and drink - at your own risk - whenever Trace says “panties”, “vagina” or impersonates poor Ms. Christensen. Is this the film that breaks the Horror Queers? If...

More
Joe and Trace hit the Carousel for the ‘Low Shoulder’ concert and a lengthy chat about Jennifer’s Body, the horror classic from 2009. The guys break down the misunderstood film’s original reception by the "boy-run" media, its recent (re)appropriation by the horror community, its completely obvious queer intentions, as well as Karyn Kusama’s preferred “Unrated/Extended” cut. Cross out the hatred because this film ROCKS. Plus: This week's game requires the guys to create their own fake rock...

Three episodes in and Joe and Trace are already ready for a vacation…in straight white homophobic hell. That’s right, we’re RIPPING into Eli Roth’s notorious 2004 torture porn flick Hostel, drilling down into the Josh/Salad Fingers relationship and questioning if Roth, the film or the characters are homophobic. Mostly the guys just lament how much better Part Two is. Plus: in this week’s game Joe forces Trace to play “Archive or Trash It” with Roth’s filmography. Questions? Comments?...

More
"Straight" out of the gate, Joe and Trace tackle the biggest horror film franchise of the 90s: Wes Craven's 1996 revisionist slasher Scream. Join the guys as they unpack all of the film's queer elements, including its metatextual references, its strong (read: bitchy) female characters, its "out" queer screenwriter and Billy & Stu's beautiful bro-mance of a love that dare not speak its name. Also: Joe makes Trace play F/M/K with the film's male cast in the first of our wide-ranging (and...

More
Welcome to Horror Queers, a queer horror podcast based on Joe Lipsett & Trace Thurman’s long running article series on Bloody Disgusting. In this first episode, the guys introduce the Pod and themselves with a series of (overly personal) questions, “Speed Dating” style. Discover their most anticipated horror films of 2019, who Trace’s first celebrity crush was, which gay sports Joe *doesn’t* play and, in a highly contentious and thoroughly scientific debate, which Hollywood Chris truly is...
