Michael Varrati: Horror Movies Are Coming Out of the Closet & We’re So Proud of Them! | LGBTQ&A

Michael Varrati talks about the queer undertones (both hidden and overt) in horror movies and why the recurring theme of the underdog who has to persevere in the face of adversity is so relatable. He talks about how there are many horror stories, like The Laramie Project, that we don’t consider to be horror movies because they’re based on true events. Michael also shares stories from touring the country with the legendary drag queen, Peaches Christ, and the mainstream media’s use of drag terms like “throwing shade”. Michael Varrati is a screenwriter and hosts the podcast, Dead for Filth.
