EPISODE 010 - HORROR HERSTORY 101

IN HONOR OF LGBTQ PRIDE MONTH IN THE UNITED STATES, WE TAKE A LOOK AT THE LGBTQ COMMUNITY'S RELATIONSHIP WITH THE HORROR GENRE. WHY DOES HORROR HAVE SUCH A LARGE GAY FOLLOWING? WHY IS THE COMMUNITY NOT REPRESENTED MORE FREQUENTLY? WHO ARE SOME QUEER HORROR ICONS? WE, ALSO, HAVE A CONVERSATION WITH FILMMAKER JOE TRIONE ABOUT HIS CAMPY AND THRILLING HOMAGE TO 80S SLASHERS - "SLAY BELLES." RUN TIME 01:07:56

Slay Belles is an upcoming slasher film written by James Wirth & directed by Joseph Trione. A Christmas Party goes awry when a masked maniac starts slaughtering the guests. Featuring local Milwaukee drag talent (including Jaymes Mansfield, Dora Diamond, and Colin Acumen) this is the one Christmas Party where you'd kill to be on the guest list!
