Greetings. As you know, June is Pride Month — a time to reflect on LGBT history, celebrate the community, and honor queer icons like THE BABADOOK.
That's right. The mother-effing Babadook, y'all. The monster from the hit 2014 indie horror flick has emerged as the new queer icon on Twitter.
Why, you (most definitely) ask? Well, apparently, it all began in the summer of 2016, when some Twitter and Tumblr users pointed out that The Babadook was categorized as an LGBT movie on Netflix.
And people were INSTANTLY passionate about it.
Sure, categorizing the movie as LGBT might've been an accident, but because the internet is truly unstoppable, the Babadook has been solidified as our new queer leader and I am HERE 👏 FOR 👏 IT 👏.
He won't be kept in the closet.
He's in a relationship with the "Bye Bye Man" — aka the Bi Bi Man.
He'll probably win an award from the Human Rights Campaign, TBH.
