I can't remember if I ever read Kill Your Boyfriend, but I would think that those themes would make perfect sense in Sebastian O, because historically the idea of the dandified or homosexual male was an offense to the social power structures in the Victorian Age, and could itself be cause for imprisonment (shades of Oscar Wilde). It's hard to imagine why those themes wouldn't
be woven into the context of such a story, even if it weren't written by Morrison in the early '90s when he often used them in his stories in different ways.
Not a great story, though, just okay. I didn't really care that much about Sebastian O.
