On this edition of Last Queer Frontier hosts Nathan & James invite Alaskan locals Tim & Carrie to The Raven to record a QueerMinded favorite, Queers on the Mic!  Because… why not ask some fun, intrusive and/or embarrassing questions about love, sex and dating and record it for a podcast? Seems like a great idea to us.

Click HERE to check out Tim lube wrestling for a charity event at Pride.  The footage was actually shot by Carrie almost 6 months ago, before they officially met each other at the recording of this show.  Yep, Anchorage is small.

On this edition of Last Queer Frontier, Enzina Marrari and Tom Chung tell us what brought them to Alaska and what they’re experiences here have been. Spoiler alert: Tom chose Alaska over making art with snake bones.

  • We discuss the EPIC painting by Tom that was featured in a UAA gallery and caused hella drama. Wait until you hear Tom read some of the postcards that were sent to him by some absolutely insane conservatives. Also, how he was interviewed by The Washington Post (who chose not to run his story), Breitbart News, and various other conservative media outlets.
  • Tom talks about some of the driving forces behind his painting as well as some of the animal symbolism he included within it.
  • Enzina and Tom tell us a little bit about the history of drama (not the Shakespeare kind) and controversy in the UAA Art Department. Both speak out about struggles they have gone through with students and struggles they have witnessed their students go through and explain what they hope comes of the situation the university is dealing with since Tom displayed his work.
