8 Thrilling 2SLGBTQIA+ Horror Books
While not an exclusively queer genre (queer meaning anything non-normative), horror and 2SLGBTQIA+ often go hand in hand. As a genre, horror often explores fear, bodies, the grotesque, and otherness. Often, there are 2SLGBTQIA+ undertones in horror, without sexuality or identity being the main focus of the plot. For example, depictions of vampires and other monster outsiders can be read as depictions of the otherness 2SLGBTQIA+ people experience as outsiders in a hetero-normative society. Whether a subtle undertone or something explicit, 2SLGBTQIA+ people have often been involved in and have loved the horror genre, and Halloween as a holiday, too! The following horror books are explicitly 2SLGBTQIA+ with characters that identify as part of the community. Here are eight thrilling 2SLGBTQIA+ horror books!
