The Queer Horror Fried Lobster Undercover Superstar – Happy Hour – It’s New Orleans
According to horror film maker and Director of the NOLA Horror Film Fest, JT Seaton, the reason gay people love horror is because being trapped in a house with a poltergeist is what it feels like all the time to be gay everyday in regular society.
When it comes to the end of his life, JT’s preferred way to go out is alone on a beach. Till that happens JT is busy cooking up Queer Horror in Fruitland. You can see why a Hollywood guy like JT fits in here in New Orleans: he’s made for the place.
