In the Queen City is a series of three videos shot in Buffalo, New York that were produced following an invitation from Hallwalls Contemporary Art Center as part of their Ways In Being Gay festival. 

An episode of The Brenda and Glennda Show, hosted by Brenda Sexual and Glennda Orgasm. Production Support Provided by Hallwalls Contemporary Art Center.

"In this episode Brenda and Glennda make their way to Buffalo. Upon arrival, they witness a mock anti-queer, anti-feminist, anti-sex protest outside the art center, a scathing and hilarious mockery of puritanical certainty, ignorance, hypocrisy, and authority. They also visit the hetero-honeymoon capital of the world, Niagara Falls. They use this as an opportunity to discuss queer couples rights and the institution of marriage. At Niagara Falls, they interview video-makers Bill Smartt and Mark Misrock about their video, Class of 86', to be featured in the festival. In the tape, Bill interviews high schoolers in his Tennessee town about queerness and AIDS."
