“I’ve Never Felt That Included In The Gay Community” (with Martin J Dixon‪)‬ Lost Spaces

    • Society & Culture

There's nothing quite like a small town gay bar.

This week we're catching up with Martin J Dixon, a stand-up comedian who is really into soft core porn and hard core hand holding.

He lived in Truro between the ages of 16 and 18, having moved there to live with his grandparents and finish high school.

It was here that he snuck in to Eclipse, and had his first gay bar experience.

During our conversation we veer all over the shop, and discuss what we think is the appropriate Grindr etiquette, what we even mean when we talk about the queer community, and what kind of decisions amorphous spiritual blobs would make about our lives...

But before we get in to that we talk about Martin's very first night at the bar as an unsure 16 year old... he's snuck in with friends from his college, the lights are low, and Destination Calabria by Alex Gaudino and Crystal Waters is playing. All of a sudden a stranger hops in to Martin's lap...

Listen to the episode to find out what happened next...

Do you have any memories of the Jack Horner, or clubbing from your own queer scene that you want to share? Well, if you have please get in touch - I want to create the biggest online record of people's memories and stories - go to www.lostspacespodcast.com and find the section 'Share a Lost Space' and tell me what you got up to! Bonus points for embarrassing photos!
