In advance of Halloween, XFINITY LGBTQ Film and TV Collection has released The Ultimate Queer Horror Collection, perhaps the most complete collection of queer horror ever compiled with over 100 LGBTQ-related horror titles and featuring a slew of unique curations
Announced in a post on the XFINITY LGBTQ blog, XFINITY LGBTQ is Here, Queer and Bringing the Fear, calling it a genre historically “lacking representation of LGBTQ community members, horror has a unique relationship with its queer viewers. There are many competing theories as to why that is, whether it’s empathy with the demonized monster and/or with the victimized slasher bait … or perhaps it’s just our stronger appreciation for the fine art of camp.”
However, “thankfully, the canon of queer horror titles has been slowly building over the past several decades, aided by a number of recent indie films which tend to prioritize inclusiveness and twist the character tropes that are considered law in their more mainstream counterparts. It’s safe to say that queer horror is having a moment right now.”
