We at Monsters Out of the Closet are so thrilled to not only be celebrating Halloween, but also the successful end of our first year as a podcast. Our producers, Nicole and Shriya started this podcast to help fill a void in LGBTQ+ representation in horror, so we are pleased that this project has grown to a point where we can compensate our artists and be a part of a growing community of LGBTQ+ horror fans and podcasters.
Now as we enter our second year, we are celebrating with our annual Halloween episode, which is out now, and a month-long fundraiser for our Patreon. If you become a new or upgrading member before November 30th, you can receive a free first-edition sticker (designed by Allie Schaff). We hope to expand our merchandise offerings in the coming months to include pins, t-shirts, and prints. As a non-profit podcast, all financial support goals to compensating our artists and ensuring that we are able to continuing giving back to our community.
In addition to our new episode and exclusive merch offer on Patreon, we are also happy to be gaining more and more recognition online, like our recent inclusion in a roundup of diverse indie horror podcasts on The Mary Sue. All things considering, tings are boding well for Year 2 of Monsters (there are still plenty of opportunities to submit pieces for 2019).
We want to thank you from the bottom of our bloody hearts for your support. Have a very spooky and fun Halloween!
