El vampiro de la colonia Roma is a novel by Mexican writer, playwright, screenwriter and translator Luis Zapata. It is considered a classic piece of homosexual literature and an example of the 1970s revolutionary post-Onda literary movement in Mexico. 


“I know it sounds crazy, but I wouldn’t mind seeing El vampiro… turned into a musical.”
Luis Zapata

The novel recounts the adventures of Adonis García, a witty working-class chichifo (a homosexual hustler) who moves to a thrilling Mexico City and lives in Colonia Roma. This vampire unapologetically spoke and continuous to speak of homosexual pleasures and sex work in Mexico City.
