A new Facebook group is part of an effort to boost growth and participation in the local South African Vampyre Community. The group is geared towards “those drawn to the icon of the vampire, those who enjoy the vampire aesthetic, people who indulge in the vampire lifestyle, people who believe they are vampires, and vampires who believe they are people” in order to “network, discuss and chat about anything relating to vampires and vampirism”.
It seems likely that there will be real vampires among the members, as well as fans and just the general seeker and the curious. According to the group description, all are welcome, as long as they follow the rules and “play nice”. So, if you’re curious about real vampires and the real vampire community – and other things that go ‘bump’ in the night, why not head over there and click ‘join’?
