Too fat for Grindr, David Cunningham shares his odyssey for online acceptance.
David is a writer/researcher on ABC TV’s The Checkout, who occasionally plays large men in top hats, togas and so on when no one else is available. He was the runner up in the Raw National Stand-up Comedy Competition in 2008, and occasionally can be found doing stand-up around Sydney until it gets too much for his knees.
For leisure, he is in his ninth year of not-quite-failing a history PhD about tensions in cultural representation of naval officers who were also members of parliament between the Glorious Revolution and the fall of the Walpole Ministry. He also lovingly tends royaldayout.tumblr.com, where members of the royal family are fondly miscaptioned.
David Cunningham will be featured in the new Queerstories book which can be pre-ordered on Booktopia.
