There's A Lesbian Haunted House Happening In Los Angeles And It's Amazing

Watch out for the pussy juice, literally. Last Friday night marked the triumphant opening of Killjoy’s Kastle, a sex positive, trans inclusive, lesbian-feminist haunted house organized by ONE Archives in West Hollywood and created by Toronto based artist Allyson Mitchell. This performer-based installation is inspired by the radical, evangelical hell houses that go up each year aiming to both entertain and terrify god-fearing Christians with a glimpse into the fiery furnace that awaits the sinners of the world. What a killjoy, right? Well there’s only one kind of killjoy more dreaded than radical evangelicals, and that’s the lesbian feminists of the world. Armed with their moral and politically correct criticisms of every aspect of the western zeitgeist, these hairy-bushed (on full view), diva-cup-wearing witches aim to lay out all of their titillatingly contradictory tropes in an educational tour led by demented women’s studies professors. Packed with a series of hilarious installations that are both thought provoking and giggle inducing, these mistresses of the night seem equally inspired by the spirit of righteousness as they are by self mockery. KillJoy’s Kastle continues from 6:30-9:30pm Saturday and Sunday, October 17 & 18; Thursday-Sunda, October 22-25; and Wednesday-Friday, October 28-30. Be sure to arrive by 8:30 to ensure time for the full, guided tour. Tours last approximately 30 minutes and it's free.
