Interview With My Ex-Boyfriend (!!): Christopher

Welcome to this spin-off edition of Interviews With My Ex-Girlfriend in which Autostraddle writers get back in touch with their ex-girlfriends to ask them Five Simple Questions. In honor of Bi+ Week, we are mixing things up!

Christopher and I met our senior year of high school and were a mess at each other for a few months. We were precious repressed 17-year-olds in Dallas-adjacent suburbs (ish) who both grew up to be queer. We made each other mix CDs with The Strokes and The Format on them. We've managed to stay friends across time, states, and countries, and I think of our brief, never-official relationship with great fondness. I have always believed that Christopher and I were longing for something we couldn't name and we found it in each other, in a way.  Christopher shares my penchant for nostalgia and introspection and graciously agreed to speak with me for this series. We talked about being repressed teens who made out in several parks and grew up to be super queer.
