Why The Queer Community Loves The Rocky Horror Picture Show

The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975) is a musical comedy horror (a genre that also encompasses the beloved Little Shop of Horrors (1986)) directed by Jim Sharman and written by Richard O’Brien. It stars Tim Curry Queer, Susan Sarandon, and Barry Bostwick with supporting roles by Richard O’Brien, Patricia Quinn, and Nell Campbell. It follows two squeaky clean mid-century stereotypes, Brad and Janet, who get a flat tire in a rainy forest and are forced to seek help in a nearby castle - a castle that happens to contain a race of sexually liberated, gender-questioning aliens that are more than happy to welcome the duo. It devolves into cheesy sci-fi horror that involves a sexy Frankenstein’s monster named Rocky and a freeze ray but also deep social issues like questioning your sexuality, gender, and lifestyle. You can expect: And yummy vocals and acting from the legendary Tim Curry as Frank-N-Furter. Not to mention not often heard singing from Susan Sarandon, who sports an outstanding, spine-tingling mezzo-soprano voice.
