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. Contributors included Black Sun Productions, G.B. Jones, Genesis P-Orridge, Paul P., REB (of Fanorama) and Ango Visone. The publication ran for eight issues before Scott decided to end it. However, in 2002, he presented issue nine in film format, entitled The Salivation Army, which has been shown at film festivals around the world, as well as in galleries and museums. 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.

Scott Treleaven has also contributed to other zines, including K48. As well, his work was included in the exhibition The Zine Unbound: Kults, Werewolves and Sarcastic Hippies.

More recently, Treleaven 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.

In 2008, he appeared in the feature film The Lollipop Generation by G.B. Jones, alongside fellow zine editors Jena von Brücker, Vaginal Davis, Jen Smith and Anonymous Boy.
