Queer Horror Movie Night: Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge

It’s that time of year! Join us on LGBT Tuesday and kick off the Halloween season the right way! We will be projecting Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge. The movie will directly follow Drag Bingo by Dora Diamond. And as always we will have free HIV testing by our friends at the Sixteenth Street Community Health Center Outreach!

“Freddy Krueger spends an entire movie trying to get into a young man’s body.”

“The intensely homo-erotic film explores Jesse’s repressed sexuality. Robert Englund (“Freddy”) has said about the film:

“… the second Nightmare on Elm Street is obviously intended as a bisexual themed film. It was early ’80s, pre-AIDS paranoia. Jesse’s wrestling with whether to come out or not and his own sexual desires was manifested by Freddy. His friend is the object of his affection. That’s all there in that film. We did it subtly but the casting of Mark Patton was intentional too, because Mark was out and had done Come Back to the Five and Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean. (Interview, Attitude Magazine, 2010).
