Three years ago, we matched on a Gentlemen’s Recreational App in New York, but I was leaving the next day. We stayed in touch indirectly through social media, as is often the way with gay acquaintances.
Last night, I was at a parliamentary reception at Westminster for an online LGBT film festival I’ve been working on at work. A tap on the shoulder and I turn to see this smiley face in the same room as me.
I don’t really believe in fate or anything like that. But I do think the universe sometimes likes to harness the potential energy of these random connections and then release it in weird serendipitous ways, in unexpected places and times. And I’m totally ok with the universe continuing to do that and surprise me with friends I didn’t even know I had.
Either that, or homos will go anywhere where there’s a free bar and a gay movie playing and y’all should be careful who you swipe right on 🤷🏻♂️
