The artist and author shares what makes him laugh online. It is extremely gay – and includes two sketches about serial killers
When I think of the internet, I think of all the things it has given me. Like when I was 15 and met a faceless boy from Argentina on the now-defunct gay message board Mogenic. We dated via MSN Messenger for a few months and – I’m realising as I write this – he might think we’re still together. Or the time I connected with a conservative Christian contestant from an early season of The Amazing Race and ended up drinking beers on horseback in their deep-red rural Florida hometown before going to a bar called The Rockin’ Ranch where I witnessed both the immediate aftermath of a shooting and some great line dancing.
Full disclosure: putting this list together has me feeling like a self-conscious gay teen at a house party in 2006, holding an aux cord in his hand for the first time, about to show his full arse by switching out the doof-doof for Delta Goodrem.
