10 LGBTQ+ Horror Novels

It’s Pride Month, and it’s time to highlight the historical impact of the LGBTQ+ community in the world of horror. There are so many horror films by and about LGBTQ+ people, but I wanted to draw attention to a genre that does not get as much air time: LGBTQ+ horror novels. Follow the links I have attached to each title to learn more about these unique and chilling stories. These titles are only some that I have read myself, so this is a short list compared to all that is out there.

Also, you can connect with me on Goodreads through the “Social” tab to follow my latest reading excursions and swap recommendations!
