Queer Horror: The Ifs, Ands, and Butts offers a survey of the topic in film and pop culture, presented with the signature
i̶n̶c̶o̶m̶p̶e̶t̶e̶n̶c̶e̶ one-of-a-kind expertise belonging to drag clown Carla Rossi, hostess of Queer Horror—the only LGBTQ+ horror screening series in the country—at Portland, Oregon's Hollywood Theatre. Utilising her skills as a horror hostess, unproven educator, mistaken entertainer, and frightening clown herself, Rossi reaches across films like Nosferatu to the Child's Play franchise to demonstrate that not only is queer horror not a subgenre, but that the overarching genre of horror itself is and always has been intrinsically queer.
All are welcome! Registrants are not required to view any films in advance of the class. There may be clips from films presented during the classtime.
