17 Monsters Who Came Out of the Closet

3. Dr. Frank N Furter Rocky Horror Picture Show

3. Dr. Frank-N-Furter

The Rocky Horror Picture Show offered a glimpse into a world of sexual freedom for a generation while giving movie theaters a reason to stay open after midnight. No greater ambassador to liberation existed than Dr. Frank-N-Furter, originated on stage and film by Tim Curry. This "sweet transvestite from Transsexual, Transylvania" fits every horror villain archetype — mad scientist, evil alien, cannibal, rapist — and somehow still becomes the most alluring character in the tale. The pansexual seduces (to be generous) protagonists Brad and Janet in separate encounters, and the namesake Rocky Horror gets presented as the doctor’s homemade dream date.
