Press Kit


A podcast about horror–in real life AND in the movies–from an LGBT perspective.

About FriGay the 13th Horror Podcast

Each episode, co-hosts Matty and Andrew tackle a real-life horror theme (racism, capitalism, current politics, etc.) and attack it from an LGBT point of view. In each episode’s second segment, the boys dissect two horror movies that connect to that theme. And in between? Lots of silly gay nonsense!

Since February 2018, FriGay the 13th Horror Podcast has rocketed past 115,000+ listens and nearly 1,000 average weekly downloads, with a dedicated listenership that is growing very steadily. What Andrew and Matty have discovered in producing the show is just how HUGE the LGBT horror community really is– and how hungry they are for some representation in an environment that can be often be skewed to white, cis/hetero dudes. FriGay the 13th Horror Podcast is positioned uniquely in the market with a keen focus on current affairs in addition to horror, and it’s been cool to have people (especially LGBT people) come along for the ride.
