13 joyously queer celebrity Halloween costumes, from Janelle Monáe to Elliot Page

·2-min read

After lockdowns and social restrictions stifled last year’s spooky season, LGBT+ celebs and allies were out in force to celebrate Halloween.

Several famous queer celebs took to social media to show off their spooky, clever and all-around amazing ensembles. Lil Nas X didn’t disappoint after serving up two awe-inspiring looks as the iconic Harry Potter villain Lord Voldemort and the basketball guy from Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide.

Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon went a bit more topical with a homage to Nicki Minaj’s viral tweet about a friend of her “cousin in Trinidad” whose “testicles became swollen” and “become impotent” after getting a COVID vaccine.

Other LGBT+ celebs and allies paid tribute to their favourite movies, TV shows, comic book characters, animals and other cultural icons.

From Janelle Monáe’s wonderful takes on The Grinch and Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde, Elliot Page’s tribute to E.T. to even Harry Styles’s “Harryween” look, these are the most iconic queer costumes from Halloween 2021.

Honestly, both of Janelle Monáe’s Halloween costumes – a scary realistic Grinch and Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde ode – were impressive
