What gay anime series do you like? There are endless amounts of animated shows around the world and Japanese anime is a weakness of mine. I have watched many series, both good and bad. I always lean towards adventure fun series. I am no where near being an anime buff or otaku (which is really a negative term), so I’m always looking for new series that I know nothing about.


Although one thing I have realized is that even though many of the series I watch have at least one lesbian and/or bisexual female character, but unless the series is specifically a gay series dedicated to just their relationship, male characters are rare. Almost every series seems to explore female sexuality with fluidity. Males, not so much. In fact if a male has some sexual tension with another male, many times it is for a joke. Naruto’s first kiss is with his rival/best friend Sasuke and it was a mistake and big laugh. Although I thought Sasuke was gay up until recently.


Many Yaoi series exists. Yaoi is more geared towards a romantic set up and is usually written by women for women who enjoy seeing men in a romantic pairing. To me, honestly, most are boring. But that is an overgeneralized view. Not all are bad. Sekaiichi Hatsukoi is a decent series.


Love Stage is another popular Yaoi series. I made the attempt to watch it and couldn’t get through the first episode. But many people do like it.


In the series DRAMAtical Murder, Aoba and Noiz kiss. This story revolves around a young man named Aoba who works in a junk shop. An online cyber game called “Rhyme” becomes popular on the island he lives on. Noiz suffers from CIPA his inability to feel pain also causes him to be reckless. Noiz kisses Aoba to show that kissing is no big deal.


Cardcaptor Sakura – Toya x Yukito
Sakura lives a pretty normal life with her older brother, Toya. One day Sakura discovers a glowing book. After opening the book and releasing the cards within, Sakura is tasked with collecting each of those magical cards. Toya’s main relationship is with his best friend Yukito, the two have unspoken romantic feelings for each other.


Future Diary – Akise x Yuki: Yukiteru Amano is a 14-year-old loner who observes life and jots down the events on his cell phone. His only friends are Deus Ex Machina, the God of Space and Time, and his assistant Muru Muru. Deus transforms Yukiteru’s phone into a Future Diary, capable of predicting the future up to ninety days. Akise becomes a close ally to Yuki, Akise quickly grows to love Yuki and wishes for him to become God.


This is just a small list, there are numerous other series out there that exist, but what series do you enjoy that has a gay plot with some of its characters? I am curious cause I’m always looking to find a new show to watch.

Walking Bed- Class Comics zombie parody based on Image’s Walking Dead comic book. This features Erick and Glenn as the sole survivors of their group and their intimate budding relationship. Great comic book, and I forgot it was a parody by the end of the story. Total surprise at the conclusion.

I have researched this a bit but I do not know when we first saw a man on man gay kiss in mainstream comic books. Women have been kissing each other since forever apparently, but man on man is a bit more rare. We have probably seen some comical kisses between male characters like when Bugs Bunny constantly kissed his male enemies in any Looney Tunes cartoon. But when did we get our first actual romantic kiss between two men?


Wolverine and Hercules first kissed in Marvel’s 2013’s X-Treme X-Men #10. But that could not have been the first kiss in mainstream comics, right?


Before Logan and the son of Zeus kissed, Shatterstar and Rictor locked lips in X-Factor #45 in 2009. Technically both are bisexual or pansexual, but it counts as a nice romantic kiss between two male characters that had been hinted at being involved with each other all the way back to the 1990s.


You probably already know about Hulkling and Wiccan being a couple. They are arguably one of the most famous comic book couples of all time. But did you know they were together and published from 2009 to 2013 before readers got to see them kiss in 2012’s Young Avengers: The Children’s Crusade #9?


Midnighter and Apollo are one of DC Comic’s most famous couples- gay or straight. They were originally meant as badass re-interpretations of Batman and Superman who do not have the same moral implications as their source material. But they have since then changed to become their own unique characters. They were originally introduced back in 1998’s Stormwatch #4.


Bloke kissed his unnamed boyfriend in X-Force #118. This was way back in 2001. That may not seem like a big deal, but not a lot happened in that year with gay comic books at all. Unfortunately this was a really unmemorable series. I had to go back and read this series and I personally did not like this interpretation of X-Force and its art. But it did count as two men that were kissing.


I do not know if Image’s Savage Dragon #49 counts or not. I have always thought of Image as being the 3rd mainstream comic book universe. This issue was in May 1998 and the issue featured a character known as Super-Tough kissing his former sidekick Young-Tough. They locked lips after being separated for years. The writer is Erik Larson and he made it seem as though this was no big deal at the time. I mean wow, in 1998 that must have been a huge deal.


Was there a kiss that happened before this? Poor Kevin was introduced into Archie Comics back in 2010 and made out to be openly gay but did not get to kiss his boyfriend until 2013. It seems unfortunate that gay men get the short end of the stick in the comic verses everywhere. But it is our fate. Was there a gay man on man kiss that I am unaware of? Let me know. I cannot find more that has happened before that date. My comic book knowledge is limited, so I am not sure.

Just in time for Halloween, Class Comics has released a ‘scary’ comic book that is very similar to a lot of different horror comic books from the 1960s. We have three tales of horror that all encompass a supernatural element to it…but with a very Class Comic’s feel to it. Check out my thoughts on Scared Stiff #1 in the video below.

Have you ever heard of a Mormon superhero that was granted angelic superpowers? Neither have I, but writer Brian Anderson has created a very cool superhero that is exactly this. In fact, he has created two superheroes, both a male and female that has this exactly premise. The first three issues are out and an annual is being made at this time. Here’s my thoughts on this series.

Just recovering from FlameCon 2016 in NYC. Had a blast! I didn’t do any of the after parties but I heard they were great. I dressed in civvies on Saturday with a battle damaged Peter Parker look, but I went as Nightwing on day two for a couple hours. I took many pics and I still didn’t get everything that I wanted to get. Here’s a couple of them. I can’t wait to attend next year!

I used to pride myself on being in touch with cinema, both old and modern. This included many hyped up movies and those that go under the radar of most movie goers. In the past couple of years I have let most of that knowledge lapse to focus solely on mainstream movies, because…reasons? I don’t know why. But anyways, I really feel like watching something positive that is considered an LGBT movie. There are a lot of great gay movies out there. What is one that you like? Below I’m listing a couple that I love watching myself.

Big Eden 2

Big Eden- City Man goes back to his small hometown and has two potential love interests. Very positive image of a small community and has a great ending to it.

cjybm3SNPMfslAZ6QlZBSGENNAJ

Trick- This was the first gay movie I had ever seen. Let me correct that, it was the first gay movie I had watched that did not make gay men into a joke. Two guys who are gay but being gay is normalized to the point that it feels as though sexuality does not matter. As should be.

Eating out 2
Any of the Eating Out movies. No, they are not porn movies. But they show as much nudity as many straight movies do. Most start with a hetero-flexible character that has gay character friends that intertwine with the plot. All of the movies have pretty awesome endings and sends extremely positive vibes.

Beautiful thing 2

Bautiful Thing- Two boys that fall in love. It is a coming of age film and love is a huge component. Basic, but still a great watch even today.

4th man out

4th Man Out – Four friends that have been best buddies since childhood, one of which comes out on his 24th birthday. The friends come to grips with this fact and then make it clear that they want to help their gay friend find a guy. Very cute movie with another great ending.

SONY DSC

Paternity Leave- Very UNUSUAL movie in the sense that men are able to become pregnant in this world. Very happy ending to it and keep your mind open to alternate realities. Don’t think about it too much, or your mind may explode as to the specifics of male anatomy.

Last Straight Man

The Last Straight Man- Closeted man is throwing a bachelor party for his best buddy, who he happens to have a crush on. I have literally been there and done that in the past. I will not go into details, but it has a great ending to it.

Latter Days

What are your favorite positive LGBT movies that you like?
