James and Mikko


Filmmaker and filmmaker/writer/PhD student.

How long have you been together?

Eight years(ish).

How did you meet?

Mikko: We met in the dorms though we actually first spoke on the bus back from a drunken freshers’ night out, but I’m the only one who remembers this.

James: We were in the same dorm at university and then filmmaking society together, though we didn’t make anything then. We had an argument over who was the biggest selling female artist of all time (spoiler: it’s Madonna!).

What is the key to a healthy modern gay relationship?

Mikko: Honesty, open communication and a shared outlook on life.

James: A sense of humour and a bad short-term memory.
