Michelle Belanger is an American author, singer and prominent advocate of the vampire lifestyle community, a self-described "psychic vampire". Belanger is also involved in BDSM and polyamory lifestyles. She is an advocate for alternative sexuality and kink (as well as safety and responsibility there in) and has spoken at scene events and conventions on topics such as erotic biting, knife play and erotic energy work. In her profiles for such events she notes she has worked as a fetish model and dominatrix. Born intersex, Belanger was surgically altered upon her birth. When referencing the event she says she prefers to use the term hermaphrodite as she is fond of the poetic origins of the word.[1][2] She has authored several books on vampirism, paranormal and occult research, has appeared in television documentaries about magic and modern occultism, and formed a club or coven for psychic vampires, called House Kheperu.[3][4][5] She has performed as a vocalist with Gothic music bands, such as URN and Nox Arcana.


Michelle Belanger is a spokesperson for the modern vampire cult movement, giving talks on the student campus network,[6][7][8] and has appeared in a number of television shows and films documenting the vampire subculture.
