THE GIRL WHO BE­CAME THREE BOYS

ABC2, 9.30pm

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - TV -

The in­ter­net has given us many won­der­ful things – Spo­tify, eBay and many, many amus­ing cat memes – but never be­fore has it been so easy to lie about your iden­tity to to­tal strangers. This is the ex­tra­or­di­nary and chill­ing true story of Gemma Barker, 21, who in­vented and im­per­son­ated three boys ( each with their own Face­book page, email ad­dress and phone num­ber) to se­duce to two teenage girls. Barker is now serv­ing 30 months in prison for fraud and sex­ual as­sault. A gen­uinely bizarre story of de­cep­tion, abuse and the mis­use of so­cial net­works.
