IF Horror Book Club

Intersectional Feminist Horror Book is open to the public!


Feminism is for everyone! We welcome all genders and identities and are
committed to creating a space that stands in defiance of a white supremacist
patriarchy.

We will be reading books from the horror genre and happily define horror as
widely as possible.

We meet on the 3rd Sunday afternoon of every month at Footnote. You can find
us on Facebook at IF HORROR BOOK CLUB.

Let’s get SCARY!

Through the lens of horror--from Halloween to Hereditary--queer and trans writers consider the films that deepened, amplified, and illuminated their own experiences.Horror movies hold a complicated space in the hearts of the queer community: historically misogynist, and often homo- and transphobic, the genre has also been inadvertently feminist and open to subversive readings.
