Ten years before putting nipples on the batsuit and suggesting a romantic relationship between Batman and Robin, Joel Schumacher directed a queer-coded vampire movie.
The Lost Boys was planned by Richard Donner as a Goonies-inspired kid adventure but when Schumacher replaced Donner, he decided to make the characters older, sexier, and flamboyantly queer. Here’s a top 10 list of what makes The Lost Boys the gayest vampire movie.
#10 – The Sax Player
#9 – Leather Queens
#8 – Fashion
#7 – Queer Extras
#6 – Singing in the Tub
#5 – Rejected Teens Find a Chosen Family
#4 – Rob Lowe Poster
#3 – Sleep All Day. Party All Night. Never Grow Up.
#2 – Coming Out is Hard
