Bite me: Gay vampire fiction ideas

What’s more gay than vampires? LGBTQ+ vampire stories are as old as the vampire sub-genre itself, with Carmilla by Sheridan Le Fanu paving the way back in 1872. To continue the trend, I’ve pulled together 22 gay vampire fiction ideas to inspire new stories.

While I’ve compiled these based on ‘gay vampires’ as a theme, I’ve also included representation for polyamory, and all prompts can be interpreted for any gender identities. Why can’t vampires be gender non-conforming, after all? They usually are!

Any acknowledgement or credit for using any of my prompts is always appreciated, whether it’s linking to my website from yours or a social media shoutout.
