Biographies of famous LGBT people


Clive Barker 1952 -

Britsh author Clive Barker is one of the biggest and most successful names in modern fantasy/horror fiction. His debut in the USA led master of horror Stephen King to proclaim: “I have seen the future of horror and its name is Clive Barker."

Barker has been openly gay since giving a magazine interview around fifteen years ago. Born in Liverpool, he now resides in Los Angeles with his parter David Armstrong, a photographer.

Barker has also been involved in producing films, most notably Hellraiser and the gay-themed Gods and Monsters, for which Ian McKellan was nominated for an Academy Award.

A lifelong fan of Marvel Comics, Barker created new superheroes for a Marvel imprint in the early 1990s.
