Thank you so much for taking the time to complete this questionnaire. The goal of this research project is to understand the habits, tastes, opinions, and experiences of queer fans of horror. Aggregate results and selected quotes from this questionnaire will remain anonymous when included in my doctoral dissertation at Manchester Metropolitan University’s Centre for Gothic Studies. This questionnaire should take about 20 minutes to complete.
