Gay Love is Beautiful

posted by on May 2 at 8:45 AM


It looks like the Brits have a Dahmer of their own now.

The first winner of the Mr. Gay UK contest has been charged with murdering a man amid fears he planned to eat the corpse.

Anthony Morley, 35, was held after Damian Oldfield’s body was found at a house in Harehills, Leeds, with a chunk cut out of the right leg. Police are said to have found human flesh diced as though “for cooking”.

Officers are now having to consider the possibility that the killer had “eaten some of the flesh.” They were alerted after a man, covered in blood and wearing a white nightgown and slippers, went into a nearby kebab shop.

The former Mr. Gay UK worked for a publication called, er, Bent. Yikes.

Speaking of Jeffrey Dahmer, please to indulge me in this classic joke from the 1990s:

What did Jeffrey Dahmer say to Lorena Bobbitt?

"Are you gonna eat that?"

Ooo could this become another pit-bull, child abuse, priest abuse posting subject?

@1: It helps to read stories before commenting on them....

I'm actually feeling kind of pro-cannibal, here. It could be a trend setting gay subculture...

Look out Bears. The Cannibals are coming.

A caption might help: I think the guy on the left might have eaten the guy on the right?

Also, the VICTIM worked at Bent.

I think the pics are both Morley, the one on the right is his current age.

At the article, the caption below the picture reads, "Anthony Morley, left, was arrested after Damian Oldfield's body was found with a chunk of flesh missing from his leg."

@1, 11 & 12 Arrgghh what is the matter with you people?? The caps tell you who they are. Alledged perp: left and victim: right

@14: My point was that the blog post was misleading. I read the Towleroad article earlier this moment and realized people were confused here because of a lack of information.

There's also a factual error at the end of the article.

That's all I had to say.

From the original article...

"Morley and Mr Oldfield were thought to be friends"

Uh...friends don't eat friends...

"In his submission for the competition, Morley said his hobbies were 'dancing and body building' and that he 'likes to please people'."

"Wait, did I say, 'please'?...I meant 'eat'"

As 11 and 14 pointed out, it was the victim who worked at Bent, not the killer. And Bent is actually fairly popular, at least as gay publications in the UK go.

So, was it consensual or not?
