Les Queer Horror Awards ont été créés pour honorer les ouvrages du genre horreur qui mettent en scene positivement des personnages, thématiques et genres LGBT

The Queer Horror Awards were created to honor works that involve significant, and generally positive, portrayal of gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender characters, issues or themes within the area of horror. Horror, for the purposes of these awards, includes things traditionally considered horror, as well as dark fantasy, noir, and even other genres if they are dealing with significant horror elements, such as ghosts, vampires, werewolves, or other monsters.
