‘Dahmer’ Series Creator Upset Over LGBTQ Tag Removal

  • Ryan Murphy, who created the hit Netflix series about serial murderer Jeffrey Dahmer, said he was upset when the platform removed the LGBTQ tag from the story about a “gay man” and “his gay victims.”
  • In a recent lengthy interview for The New York Times, Murphy said not all “gay stories” have to be happy and admitted he was displeased when the streaming site removed the LGBTQ tag from “Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story” because “people were upset.”
  • “The rule of my career has been: The more specific you are, the more universal you can become,” Murphy explained. “I also don’t think that all gay stories have to be happy stories.”
