In A Case for the Closet, Glennda Orgasm and Judy LaBruce host an episode of Closet Talk. They discuss why they are for people staying in the closet, and attribute coming out of the closet to the mediocrity, and thus downfall, of gay culture. Glennda and Judy establish their new movement, XXX Gay (replacing the postqueer movement), and explain its philosphies and values. Later, they take a trip to the Aesthtic Realist Foundation in Soho in an attempt to find a cure for their homosexuality, but are kicked out before they can get help. Following this clip, Glennda and Judy host the book section of their show, and review three books on the XXX Gay reading list, joined by bisexual author Bruce Benderson. They end with a screening of a segment from Boys in the Band as they perform their very own DIY electroshock gay aversion therapy, hoping to find a cure for their homosexuality. 

Featuring the Aesthetic Realists, Kevin, and Bruce Benderson.
