It's time for another installment of From The Inbox! This time Projectors can help provide an answer to a question we got yesterday afternoon.

From: the zak
Message: Who were/are the most well known criminals, murderers who were/are gay/queer/MSM ?...

I have no idea, Zak, but I'm sure some of our readers will know. I know there was a gay serial killer from Indianapolis, but I don't remember his name.

Use the comments section to fill Zak in, Projectors.

It's rumored that Leopold and Loeb were lovers, they were famous/infamous.

There was also Bob Berdella, the gay serial killer in Kansas City in the 80's

I think there was some speculation that Jeffrey Dahmer was gay.

John Wayne Gacy was gay. And he killed like 30 young guys and buried them in his basement. How odd- I just watched a movie on that last night and then this question pops up...

Richard Speck killed eight student nurses

I'm surprised no one's mentioned jeffrey dahmer....

I am suprised no one has mentioned Indianapolis' own Herb Baumeister.

Thanks Chuck! That's the guy I was trying to remember.

I actually met Jeffrey Dahmer - he was at the Triangle Nightclub in Milwaukee in 1990, and sat with us during a show. He was nice, funny, kinda cute. I just about prolapsed my uterus when I saw him in the news the next year!

I think it should be noted that many, many GLBTQ villains have been portrayed in film and television. I hope we can someday get away from this unfortunate stereotype so we don't repeat such horrible movies like "Cruising."
