Welcome to Season 2 of The Monstrous Feminine! To celebrate Pride month, we look at depictions of queerness in horror! 🏳️‍🌈 We cover a lot of ground in this episode. To start it off, we theorise why horror is appealing to queer audiences, and descend into ✨discourse✨ about pink-washing. We then move on to discuss why there is so much doppel-banging in queer horror. We also explore why telekinesis is a useful metaphor for repressing queerness. Finally, we scrutinise the links between religion, queerness and horror. Check it out! Get ready and go watch 'The Hunger' (1983 dir. Tony Scott) 🧑🏻‍🎤🩸⚰️, 'Thelma' (2017 dir. Joachim Trier) 🧠🙇🏼‍♀️🙏🏻, and 'Saint Maud' (2020 dir. Rose Glass) 👩🏻‍⚕️✝️🔥. You can find us on most platforms @themonstrousfemininepodcast, and on Twitter, @themonfempod.
