Drag Screams: A Drag-Themed Horror Anthology

Posted by Randi on Wednesday, January 2, 2019

What they want:
Drag and horror have always been close cousins. We’re looking for horror stories centered around the drag community. Drag is a celebration of identity and art and horror is a cathartic release of endorphins and societal scraps. Rocky Horror and Psycho are only a few horror tales with drag-inspired themes that demonstrate a wide range of tone and theme. ​

We’re looking for diversity to reflect the drag community. We’d like stories not just featuring campy gurls, but also straight queens, drag kings, non-binary performers, fans, artists, etc. As long as they’re in the horror realm, all sub-genres and mash-ups are welcome (comedy, sci-fi, speculative, etc.). Stories don’t need to include sex/romance, but if they do, keep them Rated G to R, and not XXX.
