Brilliant series 'Queer Ghost Hunters' reaches out to misunderstood LGBTQ ghosts
LGBTQ voices have always struggled to be heard, and none more than the voices of the undead.
A new web series called Queer Ghost Hunters hopes to bridge that gap. The show, produced by documentary filmmaker Stu Maddox, follows a group of LGBTQ ghost hunters, collectively known as the Stonewall Ghost Hunters, as they travel around the United States to different haunted houses, prisons and mental institutions, seeking to make contact with the queer dead.
As one of the hunters explains in the opening trailer, the filmmakers were tired of the presumption that all ghosts had to be heterosexual. LGBTQ ghosts, many of whom spent their lives in hiding, have stories that desperately need to be heard by the living.
