The event creator says
QUEER HORROR is a new multimedia festival of genre works by queer artists, performers, and filmmakers. Short films and videos are punctuated by live campfire storytelling and performances that question horror’s relation to queerness and what it means to identify with the monster. QUEER HORROR is programmed by PNCA + Hollywood Theatre Media Resident Anthony Hudson and hosted by Portland’s premier drag clown Carla Rossi.

Maybe it’s the fact that queer people are so often relegated to shadows of otherness that the horror genre is more immediately relatable for us. We grew up with boogeymen. We’ve lived with boogeymen. Goblins and ghosts are a welcome escape from real-life monstrosities. From the work of James Whale to John Waters and Clive Barker, and films and shows like Whatever Happened to Baby Jane to American Horror Story, horror has deeply impacted queer culture and sensibilities and QUEER HORROR asks why.
