The gay as hell TV adaptation of Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire is now streaming in Australia on ABC iview.

The classy vampire TV series is the latest adaptation of the author’s 1976 gothic horror novel.

But the new series turns the gay subtext into text and is so much gayer than the 1994 film starring Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise.

The AMC series premiered late last year to acclaim, and now the entire first season dropped on ABC’s iview at the weekend.

In 1910 New Orleans, gay Black man Louis (Jacob Anderson) owns a brothel and during a poker game meets an enigmatic stranger who has supernatural powers.

Lestat de Lioncourt (Sam Reid) is charming all of the poker players, but sets his sights on closeted Louis.

The men first become friends but are both attracted to each other. Halfway through the first episode, two two men consummate their relationship in a beautiful, levitating vampire sex scene.

Louis accepts Lestat’s offer of an escape from the hardships of his life and joins Lestat as his vampire companion.

But the gay man discovers his newfound immortality and his intoxicating new powers come with a price.

The couple’s relationship is further complicated by the adoption of teenage vampire daughter Claudia (Bailey Bass).

In the US, AMC has confirmed a second season of the gay vampire drama is on the way.

Interview with the Vampire is screening in Australia on ABC and streaming on ABC iview.
