Despite what canonical representation in films may lead us to believe, horror films have always been rooted in LGBTQ+ creators and creations since horror's first major motion picture, 1922's Nosferatu, directed by F.W. Murnau, a gay man. Colangelo will share the history of queer-coded films and how queer stories continue to influence horror movies today.
BJ Colangelo is an actress, director, and writer. Her film criticism and analyses have been featured in various publications, including Bloody Disgusting, Cleveland Scene, and Medium. She has also been a speaker and panelist at San Diego Comic Con and Flaming River Con.
