The Two Gay Geeks 🏳️‍🌈 have a chat with each other about their experience at Winter Horrorfest and the many folks we met. Winter Horrorfest was to benefit Mulligan’s Manor, a charity that takes in at-risk LGBTQ+ kids who are about to age out of the foster system. They wanted to provide these kids with the best Christmas ever. A number of celebrities were in attendance, including Mick Strawn, Nick J Benson, Eileen Dietz, Eugene Clark, John Dugan, Father Vampire, Dr. Paul Kourdounaris, and Stephen Biro from Unearthed Films. A fun time was had by all, and some money was raised for the A Fright Before Christmas. Have a listen and we hope you enjoy this as much as we did.
 




About

Winter HorrorFest presents The Fright Before Christmas, a family-friendly, Christmas-themed horror convention December 16-18 at The Phoenix Center for the Arts. Celebrity guests include Eugene Clark (Land of the Dead), SFX Master Mick Strawn, Eileen Dietz (The Exorcist), John Dugan (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre), Dr. Paul Koudounaris (Hexencult), Stephen Biro (Unearthed Films) and Father Vampire. Phoenix Ghostbusters will be on site for fun and photo ops, too!

Vendors, food trucks, a costume contest for cash and prizes, a candy crawl, and so many more exciting events and activities await you at this 3-day event.

Special movie screenings with live q&a, an incredible SFX presentation by Mick Strawn, and even a pizza party during the screening of DTLA Film Festival nominee Murder Pizza with a live q&a by writer and director Elizabeth Dowland are included in your ticket price!

As a special part of this event, we are raising funds and awareness for Mulligan’s Manor, a local family setting group home for at-risk LGBTQ youth in the foster system. Our goal is to give them the best Christmas ever and show them that there is a whole community ready to love, embrace, guide, and assist them as they age out of the system.


About Mulligan’s Manor



☀☀☀

​​There are approximately 15,000 youth in the Child Protective Services system in Maricopa County, which means that in all likelihood there are hundreds​ of LGBTQ children in need​ of respectful housing.

Mulligan’s Manor is a loving and supportive group home dedicated to at-risk gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, and heterosexual adolescents ranging from 12 to 17 years old. We are a family-oriented, LGBTQA (Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual, Transgender, Questioning, and Ally) community that nurtures and empowers our youth to reach their full potential, as well as provide tools for a safe and healthy life.

A “Mulligan” is known by golfers as a second chance, or a “do-over”. Our mission is to give every member of our family the second chance to experience the love and respect he deserves.
