Historical Note

Kansas City Trucking Co. (1976) was one of three films known as "The Kansas City Trilogy," written and directed by gay filmmaker Tim Kincaid, also known as Joe Gage. Made in the 1970s, the trilogy was notable for "portrayals of male/male sex occuring between rugged, masculine men who came from blue-collar and rural backgrounds and related as 'equal partners,'" which was perceived to be in contrast to stereotypical portrayals of gay relationships.
