Scott Treleaven is a filmmaker, artist, writer and zine editor from Toronto.

He first came to attention with his initial foray into filmmaking, Queercore: A Punk-U-Mentary. Featuring live performances by Los Crudos and Pansy Division and interviews with those in the scene such as Larrybob, editor of Holy Titclamps, the film proved to be a decisive documentary, offering film festival audiences an inside look at the queercore scene.

After the success of the film, he began working on a zine called This Is The Salivation Army, the first queer punk pagan zine. The publication ran for eight issues before Scott decided to end it. Contributors included Black Sun Productions, G.B. Jones, Genesis P-Orridge, Paul P. and Ango Visone. However, in 2002, he presented issue nine in film format, entitled The Salivation Army, which showed at film festivals around the world. In 2004, he decided to do one final issue, his tenth, 'Issue X'. In 2006, on the tenth anniversary, a compendium of the zine was published in book format, titled The Salivation Army Black Book.

Since then, Scott has focused on his artwork, exhibiting in galleries in North America and Europe the collages that were first seen in the pages of This is The Salivation Army.
