Two Dead Queers Presents: GUILLOZINE the Interview

Shock. Gore. Sacrilege. And more! GUILLOZINE contains art and stories that dare to push the boundaries. Available both for free online and for physical purchase on Amazon, GUILLOZINE is really a no boundaries zine.

GenderTerror had the good fortune of being able to interview both parts of Two Dead Queers, K.M. Claude and R.E. Hellinger, about not only the zine and the future, but also about their creative process.

GenderTerror: Let’s start off with the obvious, what is Two Dead Queers?

K. M. Claude: You’ve got Two Dead Queers the brand or institution or whatever you want to call this overarching beast and then the zine series Two Dead Queers Present which’re two separate but interrelated, symbiotic entities. Two Dead Queers as a whole is about creating art and stories without shame, without silence, and without censorship, and strives to deliver works by queer horror creatives for anyone and everyone who’s interested — or at least who dares.

R.E. Hellinger: With Two Dead Queers Present, we wanted to be able to offer something we made and enjoyed making for free. It’s a sort of love letter to those who already love Claude’s art and to those who love weird horror. We want people to find our zine and go “hey! This is neat!” and not only get excited for our next zine release or other projects we may be separately working on, but also encourage them to put their own wonderful weirdness out into the world.

Peeling

Hey there! My name is Lonnie, I’m a mixed Latinx trans artist living in the Portland area.

I’ve been a fan of horror for a while, but only recently have I started to look into book and movie classics. A  lot of my own  inspirations that lend to my  horror work are things like Watership Down, abandoned amusement parks, liminal spaces, stop motion, puppetry, and Fantadroms.

This specific piece was about a recent bout of dysphoria. When I become too shabby and my hair starts to grow out I start to  fret over it to the point where my physical appearance as a whole becomes something I hate looking at. It doesn’t happen too often anymore as I’ve gotten more comfortable with myself but it comes and goes.

Dead For Filth Presents: The Glam & Gore Picture Show!

The Glam & Gore Picture Show, presented by Dead for Filth Michael Varrati, focuses on bringing a queer twist to classic horror movies. Presented for free every Saturday by queer streaming site REVRY, The Glam & Gore Picture Show digs deeper into films such as Nosferatu and The Last Man On Earth.

Through a mix of wit and inspiration from horror greats like Elvira, Varrati brings a wonderfully queer twist that is sure to capture and delight all viewers. The Glam & Gore Picture Show hopes to bring horror classics to a younger generation as well as those newly into queer horror. Queer horror has been around for many years, including being pervasive in many of the classics.

Varrati is no newcomer to the screen or horror either. Not only has Varrati been the host for the queer horror podcast Dead For Filth, but he has also worked as a screenwriter, columnist, and actor. His name can be found in the credits for such movies as Tales of Poe, Flesh for the Inferno, and The Sins of Dracula. To top his amazing resume off, Varrati is also the host of the yearly San Diego Comic Con panel “Queer Fear”. If there is a person suited for this job, Varrati is the guy.

At the time of this writing, two episodes are currently out to watch for free on REVRY, with three more on the way. Dead For Filth can also be found on REVRY, as well as iTunes.

The final episode of The Glam & Gore Picture Show will drop on Halloween, so be sure to catch-up while there is still time!

Split

cclownsmwm

Hello fellow queer horror enthusiasts! I go by Teensiest on most places around the internet and I’m fascinated with clowns. As a child, clowns were my number one fear. So when I got a little older, I made a couple of clown characters of my own to help me get over that fear. The subject in this piece is a recent addition to my family but they hold a special place in my heart all the same. Body horror is another fascination of mine, so any time I can use a character to explore my more monstrous side, I’m excited.

Mixing cute and creepy is my specialty, so if you’d like to see more of that kind of thing, head on over to my art tumblr or my instagram.

“Thou call’dst me dog before thou hadst a cause;
But, since I am a dog, beware my fangs.”
— Shylock, The Merchant of Venice

Something that always appealed to me about horror was the fact that it felt like home. It was a place where I could belong, something as a trans man, I’d never had before. I never belonged with girls, but never belonged with boys either, I never belonged in my family, and friend groups were as flimsy as wet cardboard, and when the world turns it’s back on you and brands you an abomination, eventually it feels good to own that, to spit it back in their face and say “I may be an abomination, but at least I’m not you”.

I’d like to be free from binders one day, but I don’t think I’ll ever be free from being labelled as trans, and maybe that’s not such a bad thing after all.

Self Portrait

image1-copy

Hey my name is Kaira/Scotty/Bailey (I go by any of these!) and I’m a very big fan of horror and gore! I’ve liked “creepy” things ever since I was little and have always been drawn to it  and as I got older and developed my art and story telling skills my love for horror followed. I do a lot of different forms of horror drawings, from candy gore to dark body horror, but I am always drawn to gore with very vibrant colors like you see in this piece. It’s both aestheticly pleasing and a sort of coping mechanism for me so I do it more of a get away than as a profession but that’s not going to stop me from improving my skills and putting out more for others to enjoy! I hope this is a good intro for my first post and I hope that you all like what I put out just as much as I admire all of your works!

My gore/nsfw artwork can be found at http://kai-gore.tumblr.com while my other art can be found at http://kai-rax.tumblr.com/. I also have an art Instagram which you can follow @kairaxart!

CHEWTOY

werewoof-bitesm

Hey I’m Murphy, a trans guy from Ontario, Canada. You can find me on tumblr, twitter and furaffinity (forewarning, my fa has nsfw content)!

While I’ve only more recently began adding gore to my art, it’s been something I’ve obsessed over since childhood. Gross, slimy, horror has always drawn me in. And of course for Halloween I just had to draw a werewolf using his tiny boyfriend as a chewtoy!

Happy Halloween!

Picking

genderterror-comicsm

Hey folks, I’m Marty – you can find me online as marblemartin on tumblr, twitter, FA… pretty much everywhere. I’m a nonbinary transmasculine artist living in Indianapolis, Indiana, which is luckily a small haven for the LGBTQ community in the midst of all these cornfields. I draw comics and recently opened up a little bookbindery/studio. I love monsters, critters, aliens, and robots. There’s something freeing about not adhering to human beauty when drawing these things!

I struggle with depression and anxiety alongside my dysphoria – both the social and bodily types – and this seems to be a common issue in the queer community. For me it manifests with me picking at my cuticles and skin, a kind of dermatillomania. It’s not quite what people expect when they think of self-harm, but it’s still destructive. I sometimes get weirdly freaked out about depicting myself in art – am I being too accurate and ‘misgendering’ myself visually, am I being too idealistic? So I decided to get out my hangups over my picking in a comic, just go full William Blake and bare my ugly side. Bring on the scabby chrysalis, I’m ready to turn into a beautiful queer butterfly.

fun guts

sdfsfooosm

hi, my name is rex, also known as prince lamb on tumblr and lambscape on furaffinity! im a trans guy from england who spends his free time drawing gross stuff and playing video games. i started drawing gore some time after i finished school, but i remember discovering gurochan during a free period and being absolutely fascinated. the stuff i saw there really grossed me out but i kept going back to look at more. it wasnt until a few years later when i came across an artist called manglo who was a big inspiration to me when i was younger, that i started drawing stuff like this for myself. weirdly, red is actually one of my least favourite colours, so i vary rarely use it, instead i adore using pinks and purples for all my blood and guts. my art usually features bright colours or pastels, or sometimes both at the same time! i love drawing gross and weird things but i also like to keep it cute in some manner, either with the colours or the character featured. the juxtaposition between cute and gross is very fun.

Decay

Jim worked in a field that left his definition of “deceased” a little blurred.

It had sort of called to him ever since he was a child – that desire to distort the line between life and death, to explore what he could outside the bounds of “nature.” His father had been a pious man, a preacher, but where his mother had been quiet and kind, his father had been cruel and his words had rang out like God himself was using him as an amplifier. He could still hear the hellfire spilling from his lips as he lorded over his congregation, spoke of sin and eternal damnation. Whenever he’d preach those things – promises of punishment for being a heathen –  he’d always look down at his son in the first row. It was like he’d seen something sinister in the boy on the day he was born, and every move Jimmy made only solidified that suspicion.

So Jim had done what came natural – he had cowered from his father, turned away from his warnings of damnation and demons. It wasn’t out of spite (he had never been too spiteful, really) but out of fear, a desire to protect himself. He wasn’t bad, right? He hadn’t even done anything wrong, at least, not until he turned twelve and met the witch that would grant him his very first spellbook, would whisper that he had potential, that he had a knack for black magic.

That had been years back, though, in another story altogether – a time when he’d been fragile, swayed by his desire for approval, to find a place he belonged. He was hardly that watery eyed preacher’s son anymore – now he was a thirty-something year old necromancer who hadn’t shaved in a week or so, who smelt of sulfur and gore and stale cigarettes. He lived in the middle of nowhere in a dirty little trailer, and practiced his craft within the shelter of those rotting particleboard walls.

Things were, he assumed, as good as they’d ever get.
