Sal Piro is an American Rocky Horror Elder and the President of The Rocky Horror Picture Show Official Fan Club. He is the older brother of Lillias Piro.

Piro began attending screenings of The Rocky Horror Picture Show at the Waverly Theater in early 1977. Along with other early enthusiasts, Piro started the fan club in 1977 and later took it national after he and his group relocated to the 8th Street Playhouse. Along with being the Emcee at his theater, Sal became the voice of the Rocky Horror community, eventually acknowledged by both producer Lou Adler and 20th Century Fox. As a Rocky Horror Legend, Sal is a staple at most Rocky Horror Conventions and special events, continuing in his leadership role to this day.
