The Gay Agenda in Horror: Terrifying Subtext
The horror genre is based on our fears of the unknown, fear of "outsiders," and the attraction and repulsion of giving in to transgressions and forbidden passions. These elements have also been associated with the LGBTQ community mostly in a negative sense. All the way back to horror stories of the late 1800's, Dracula, Dorian Gray, and more, the subtext of gay and lesbian characters and themes was unspoken, hinted at, or inferred. But in the last few decades subtext has become "text." In novels from Anne Rice and others, to films and TV shows like The Hunger, True Blood, Hellbent, and American Horror Story, the queer side of horror has come out into the light. Join Prism Comics and moderator Michael Varrati (Tales of Poe, Sins of Dracula) as they discuss the history of this popular genre from a queer perspective. Panelists will include Andy Mangels (Nightmares on Elm Street, Childs Play, Star Trek, Star Wars Comics) and Mark Bessenger (Bite Marks, The Last Straight Man).

This Looks Like a Job For . . .
Have you ever been asked what superpower you would like to have? A research study conducted by Keith W. Beard, Psy.D. (professor of psychology, Marshall University), April Fugett, Ph.D. (associate professor of psychology, Marshall University), and Josh Carter, Britani Black, and Elijah Wise (doctoral students, Marshall University) examined how your choice of superpower may influence occupational interest and career choices.
