How Not To Be Seen: Unlearning Invisibility – One Year Later

It’s Pride Month and nearly a year has passed since my essay, “How Not To Be Seen: Unlearning Invisibility,” was first published here on Haute Macabre.

When They Ask You What You Did, Have an Answer

Mural by Tatyana Fazlalizadeh In the wake of the horrific events in Charlottesville, it seems like the time to take a break from posting the pretty things, and spend a minute on the ugly stuff. White supremacy cannot continue. It has to go. Things have to change. We have to change them. If you are […]

Leslie Ann O’Dell: Haunted Harbingers and Feral Phantoms

I gasped audibly the first time I set eyes on the work of contemporary artist Leslie Ann O’Dell. Entirely self-taught, O’Dell combines photography, digital art, and sometimes traditional elements to create portraits of nightmarishly beautiful creatures, each born of her own imagination yet to me feel like still more characters from unknown folktales I’m now yearning […]

She is Hungry

New Drag Crush: Hungry.  Hailing from Berlin (is everyone amazing in Berlin these days?), Hungry bills herself as “The original ethereal slag, descended from the heavens to make you question your sexuality and force progress upon tragic oldschool drag”.

Aural Fixation: July 2017

Sarah Lust For Life, Lana Del Rey I am an unapologetic Lana Del Rey fan, and I don’t believe in guilty pleasures, so I’m not even going to go there. (“Fuck guilt,” someone famous once said. I think it was Queen Elizabeth.) I’ve loved Lana from the very moment that someone told me I was […]

Stacked: July 2017

Image by Brooke Shaden Sarah’s Reads Cujo by Stephen King I have spent most of my life chasing that elusive feeling of freedom that the months of June through August afforded me when I was grade school age.
