After tireless years of writing about horror, without bent, for online publications like Horror Society and Racks and Razors, I found myself being inspired anew, a couple of years ago, by the passionate and highly original voices of fright loving women such as Hannah Neurotica (Women in Horror Month), Kristy Jett(Horror Hound), Reyna Young and so many others. They seemed to be the most interesting, truly dedicated proponants of scare and they emboldened me – hence Big Gay Fan was born. (And now it seems “the gays” are popping up, everywhere, from horror conventions to zombie walks to film festivals!)
While there is queer (and political) content here, to be sure, for the most part I’ve found that I am the “Gay” in Big Gay Horror Fan and I simply write about what interests me – whether that is the truly awesome, totally incorrect independent horror productions of Mike O’Mahoney and his Maniac Films or the amazing lives of the Broadway queens and classic movie divas(a favorite subject) like Georgia Brown, Tammy Grimes, Lana Turner, Vivian Blaine and Gloria DeHaven – to name just a few – whom have appeared in multiple fright flicks.
I’ll, also, share video interviews I’ve done with horror folk of all walks, reports from the films (like Larry Cohen’s Delusion and the Investigation Discovery show, Double Cross ) that I’ve worked on, links to my ‘legitimate’ writing for sites like Fangoria (http://www.fangoria.com/index.php/moviestv/fearful-features/7386-anne-bobby-still-among-the-nightbreed)and news about other projects I’m working on.
Thanks for ‘spooking’ me out and be sure to ‘friend’ my Facebook Page, as well @ https://www.facebook.com/biggayhorrorfan!
SWEET love and pink GRUE — Big Gay Horror Fan!
