I loved it!
Honestly, I was lured to Boy Meets Boy because I expected it to be more... explicit. I ended up loving it so much that I read the whole thing anyway. It's adorable, fluffy, and entertaining. I love all the characters, and at times the comic manages to be hilarious, cute, and occasionally touching. That said, it's clearly the work of a beginner. Though it's nothing to be embarrassed about, I understand why Ms. Fuhr effectively disowned it. Especially compared to her later work, the artwork is rough. The characters are nowhere near as well-rounded or realistic as the characters in her later comics. The comic (which ran from 2000-2004) is also juuuust starting to become a victim of Society Marches On. The comic, especially in the beginning, seems to rely more on the then-novel concept of "the gay odd couple" (which used to be the actual tagline for the comic. Yes, I'm a creep who used an archive site to find the website's oldest incarnation) than on characterization or situation related jokes. Boy Meets Boy is a comic I enjoyed reading very much, despite my little nitpicks, but I think it's best regarded as a "practice comic", where Ms. Fuhr really honed and found her voice.
