Home' LOTL : July 2005 Contents equality. I'm married to a wonderful
man, and it took so long to decide who
it would be because I like men and
women, and that's something that
confuses, being married and also being
such an advocate for gay marriage. For
me gay marriage is so important
because I really understand marriage
now, it's made my life complete.
Everybody should have that, not just
Is your material still as gay?
Yes, my show's very gay but it's also
mixed. It's for anyone who feels
disappointed or isolated from the
whole of society. In many ways I think
my work speaks to the universal
experience of that isolation.
A favourite piece of lesbian humour?
Oooh, there's so many. They always
have lesbians in straight porno films
but you know they're not really
lesbians because they have really long
fingernails. No lesbian would ever be

would happen. Ouch!

CHO & TELL
Gay marriage: "If you're against same-
sex marriage but laugh at Will & Grace,
fuck you! Being gay is not outrageous,
and if you think it is, you're gay!"
Racism: "In a way it is wonderful to
know that all of this kind of thing is
bubbling beneath the surface. It's like
finding proof of the Loch Ness monster."
Sexuality: "Am I gay? Am I straight?
I'm just slutty. Where's my parade?"
President Bush: "Bush is not Hitler.
He would be if he applied himself, but
he's just lazy."
Hate mail: "Fat dyke? Is that an
insult? It just means I get to eat pussy
