Halloween isn't traditionally a greeting card kind of holiday, but since when do we do traditional?
Queer people have long been associated with the spooky and monstrous - sometimes as a tool of marginalization, and often as an act of defiant self identification. Even before Tim Curry donned a corset, horror has been our genre and Halloween our holiday.
This halloween, let us celebrate our "monstrosities". Let's tell our loved ones how great they are, raise a ruckus, and get spooky.
These friends are ready to spread your messages of friendship, community, and autumnal fervor far and wide.
Regardless of the gloss, horror - and what Halloween has come to mean - is a space for going beyond what is traditionally safe, and enjoying it.
For many, Halloween parties are the first time it feels acceptable to play with gender, and opens the possibility of trying on different identities for fun.
It's a night when being scary is a plus, weirdness is whole-heartedly embraced, and "sexy" could mean an awful lot of different things.
