Queer Madness is a zine by Wilum Pugmire.

Queer Madness was released in the 1980s. Although the date given on the cover is 1781, as was Wilum Pugmire's custom in dating his zines, so this title probably came out in 1981. The first issue of Queer Madness was included in the 31st mailing of the APA Esoteric Order of Dagon, the Amateur Press Association devoted to H. P. Lovecraft, and issues two and three were included in the 33rd mailing.

Writers featured included Jessica Amanda Salmonson (Young Tyrone: A Melodrama), who contributed the poems "Deep Memory" to the first issue and "Cabbage Man" to the second issue.

Artists featured included David Vosburgh and Maurice Squidd.

Issue three featured a six page article on Bela Lugosi by Gary Dorst, with accompanying illustrations by David Billman and Allen Koszowski. Also included is a collage story by Michael Roden, that features hand drawn elements and hand lettered text.

Wilum Pugmire also published the fanzines Midnight Fantasies and Old Bones in the 1970s and Punk Lust in the 1980s. In the 2000s, he released the title Idiot Chaos.
