American Horror Story: Freak Show
Set in the year 1952, the season follows a struggling freak show in the quiet town of Jupiter, Florida. Decades have passed since the public has looked upon freak shows as a form of entertainment, but they hope to someday find a home.
In a time when the era of television is beginning to reign high above sideshow acts, these individuals must overcome those who persecute them based on their looks. However, as events unfold, it is revealed that multiple dark entities have their eyes set on the freaks. A conman, posing as a Hollywood executive, arrives with his young protege, with the intention of murdering the freaks and sending their bodies to a museum for profit. The wealthy and spoiled Dandy, enabled by his doting mother, develops an unhealthy obsession with the freaks. But perhaps most dangerous of all is a mysterious, deformed killer clown, only known as Twisty , who wreaks havoc among the town and appears to be targeting freaks and townspeople alike.
This season features many queer characters, most of which, unfortunately, are the villains of the story. Though some of it can be accounted to how difficult it was to be queer in the 50s, most cannot.
Like most of the seasons of American Horror Story, queer actors and crew are prominent. For this season it includes Sarah Paulson, Ryan Murphy, Denis O' Hare, Erika Ervin, Matt Bomer and Neil Patrick Harris
