There are a few queer vampire characters in movies and in TV. In general, we try to stick with ones that are more central to the plot. Special thanks to Pam Keesey for helping jumpstart this list by providing us with an extensive Filmography from her book 'Vamps'.
These are the items that have been found, a general description, and the general rating by the fans. (note: the ratings shows not only how good the story is, but also how well the horror or creatures are portrayed, and openly queer it is. A really good non-gay item might score very low).
