October 21-23, 2022

online and in person

Join us for our second annual festival, a hybrid (online and in person) extravaganza of glitter and fear.

In person events will be held in central North Carolina (venue TBA). 


Pink Panic. Lavender Menace. Rainbow’s Revenge. We’re serving up Gothic, slasher, supernatural, body, psychological, and generally toe-curling horror through a queer lens. From Frankenstein to Dr. Frank-N-Furter, and from Catherine Deneuve to The Babadook, the transgression of horror has often skewed a little...queer. We're flinging open the closet door (don't mind the masked man hiding behind our dressing gowns) and spotlighting the rainbow end of the horror spectrum. Gays lost in the woods? We're into it. Lesbian vampires? We want them (seriously, call us). Trans Final Girls? Send them in. Experimental animation that speaks to the asexual experience? We're here for it.

We set ourselves apart by building a community dedicated to queer creators and queer stories, from the campy to the truly skin-crawling. Horror has always embraced The Other, and queer folx around the world know a thing or two about being Othered. But we're not alone.
