One and all are welcome at this panel exploring the presence of lesbian, gay, bi, and trans artists in the horror community. From the “otherness” of the horror genre to the self-expression made possible by Halloween costumes, this niche has long afforded comfort and creativity to those who hide in plain sight, catapulting others to stardom.
With horror carving out more space in the mainstream and Halloween continuing year-round, how can we maximize our visibility? What counts as “good” representation? This panel of LGBT+ horroristas will discuss ways to make sure we’re not just following trends, but setting them — and in doing so, honoring the trails blazed by our kin throughout horror history.
Find community, get inspired, and embrace your inner diva monster! Our panelists have such sights to show you.
