Program Description

Event Details

Members of the LGBTQ+ community have often felt like “monsters,” and it has become common to view actual horror monsters – vampires, werewolves, the Babadook, etc. – as members of the LGBTQ+ community. Local cryptid expert Eleanor Hasken-Wagner, Ph.D will lead a discussion on this perspective, utilizing information from the 1996 book Monsters in the Closet by Harry M. Benshoff.
