Every time Cecil implies going home to Carlos after his show, my shriveled little heart grows three sizes.

As someone who identifies as gay, I remember growing up and going to the bookstore and going to the gay and lesbian section and thinking to myself, “This is it. This is what we have. This one shelf. That’s it.” And, you know, we have some short stories, and we have some history, and stuff like that, but you know, like, the fiction all centered around being gay. Like, it was defined by that. And so, I think what I hear a lot from the fans, and I share their sentiment, is, here is something where being gay is just one aspect of a much larger world that we live in. And that world is beautiful, and terrifying, and insane, and funny, and it just fits in there, and for me, being a gay artist, working on a show like this, like, I like gay stuff, gay stuff is cool, but I mean, you know, so many times I see independent films and and independent books and they’re writing the “Oh, this is gay fiction.” Well, what does that mean? Like, does that mean you have to be gay to read it? Do you have to be gay to write it? Like what? I don’t understand…Like, just one aspect of Cecil is his sexuality. And, on top of that, in this crazy world of Night Vale, his sexuality and his relationship with another man is the least weird thing to happen on a daily basis. And it really makes me feel so good to think back on where I was when I was like fifteen, sixteen and thinking “Yes, this is it.” Like, we’re making it. We’re pushing boundaries out, and saying, “This isn’t a gay podcast. We’re not gonna check your card at the door.” I love that.

it’s weird to think that everyone views you differently like one person might think you put the stars in the sky and another person could think you crawled out of the pits of hell and are here to drag them down with you

isn’t it so weird how people always ask what you want for christmas and your birthday and you’re there like  DUDE YOU HEAR ME WHINING ABOUT HOW MUCH I WANT MORE MUSIC AND MORE MONEY AND TMNT MERCHANDISE AND INK AND QUILLS AND PAPER AND NOTEBOOKS AND BOOKS AND SHOES AND GIFTCARDS HOW DO YOU NOT KNOW WHAT I WANT?!

And then you notice they are broke just like you and you say “I don’t know, chocolate?”
