He-Man’s Five Gayest Adventures

When it comes to the classic Filmation television series, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, it’s not much of a stretch to find homoerotic subtext in its ham-fisted dialogue and hyper-masculine, brutish-ness. However, there are times in the sci-fi hero’s quest to fight the forces of evil with his “fabulous secret powers” that it seems to move beyond mere inadvertent sexual suggestion and right into “oh, that’s just gay” territory. Here are five of He-Man’s gayest moments.

An excellent collection of beautifully written books from our very own Hector Himeros

REVIEW OF SCRIPTED LOVE AT GOODREADS: (4 stars) I loved the characters miza and abel and how miza was so in the closet that he didn’t realise he could possibly be gay but with Abel he came to love and find true love in return ,was a little teary eyed at the end, With what they had to go through and how it ended but was truly fantastic to read . It’s a shame that even in this day and age we still have all these law’s that stop people from wanting to be together regardless of sex you have really looked into and researched law’s and people’s opinions to make this work well . you really brought the characters to life for me and you placed them in a unique settings with media and people looking always

5 Adorable Comics About Gay Couple’s Everyday Life

Love is a beautiful thing, and it’s even more amazing when portrayed in a natural, sweet way like in these relationship comics.

Meet Robin, 17, and Julien, 19 – two young men who are about to conquer your hearts. The gay couple has probably the cutest and most loving relationship that is represented in pastel comics created by Wonsun Jin from Australia.

The author explains that the story of this cute gay couple is purely fiction, but that doesn’t change its beauty.

The two main characters have different personalities that complement each other. Robin is more of a stay-at-home type of guy who loves pizza, video games and tv, while Julien is an outgoing, spontaneous man with love for sports. Together, these boys create a story of love and understanding through funny yet cute daily situations depicted in this gay cartoon.

Bellow, you can find some of the gay comics about this adorable couple. Which one is your favorite? Let us know.

Basic…I wonder who my children are gonna call „mom“ in most gay couples i know they found a solution to this by saying „dad Robin“ or stuff like that…I even have one that for a few months practiced the „dad 1“ and „dad 2“, the child would be the one to elect dad 1 every week xD

Waking him up like that is mean but so cute at the same someone would wake me up like that every morning….

ladies and is the gay agenda. being too damn cute and wanting to be happy.

Nah. It’s just one of those „my relationship with my loved one“ thingy in a row of a few such series circulating recently. Besides that, these two guys don’t seem happy in all of them.

Homo, hetero, whatever…. Cheese is cheese. I upvoted the list anyway, though. ♥

The relationship between the two is same no matter what gender they are, the difference is the way we see it… The way people around them see. If people were more accepting, then there wouldn’t be any difference between homo and hetero relations

David Chlopecki is about to shine a whole new light on your childhood.

He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, the cartoon that ran from 1983-85 and then forever in syndication, was „the gayest show that has ever been on TV,“ Chlopecki asserts, with absolute certainty. As a lifelong fan of the franchise, who first discovered the toys before the show even began running, he’s had a long time to think about this. And the reasons he lays out in the latest episode of The Fandom Files are pretty unimpeachable.

First, take the show’s opening credits sequence. „As the intro to the show, they say, ‚Fabulous secret powers were revealed to him the day he held aloft his magic sword.‘ These are not regular superpowers. These are not powers from the ancients. These are fabulous secret powers. Heterosexuals, they don’t have fabulous secret powers. So he gets fabulous secret powers the day he draws out his sword, wink, wink.“

„Prince Adam is a very gay guy. He is wearing spandex, lavender spandex, and pink spandex, and white spandex,“ he notes. „That look, a blond pageboy haircut. There’s never been a gayer character! Name one! Snagglepuss sounds gay, but does not look as gay. So he goes from a guy wearing spandex with a pageboy haircut, he holds aloft his magic sword, and, poof! His clothes are gone. And he’s wearing a harness. Now, the only time my clothes have been gone and I’m wearing a harness is when I’m having sex with men.“

Chlopecki is even more enamored with Skeletor, He-Man’s evil but hapless archnemesis. Back in 2011, Chlopecki’s company Slick It Up created an art show devoted to Skeletor, with pieces by artists like Marc Jacobs and Helmut Lang. It was a huge hit — proceeds went to the Ali Forney Center for homeless LGBT youth — and it was clear that a lot of people connected to Skeletor for a reason.

„That voice! And his frustration with people, he’s always surrounded by idiots,“ Chlopeki says. „He always plays that role of someone outside the loop, which is a gay person’s role, outside the majority and having a hard time with this conservative majority, which is like He-Man’s world. He-Man doesn’t want change. And Skeletor really just wants to change the world for him and his friends. He’s really just kinda doing his own thing and He-Man stops him.“

It goes deeper than personality traits and silly foiled plots. Chlopecki says both characters‘ bodies are indicative of the AIDS epidemic that ravaged the LGBTQ community when the show was being made.

„You had extreme facial wasting, where you just had a skull. So it’s very interesting to imagine that like, here you have Skeletor, who is this buff guy who’s frustrated by the world, in a frustrating situation, his face is a skull, and then you have all these gay guys who are dying and their faces are wasting away, but they’re all on steroids, so they’re like buff. So they have this deformed person [Skeletor], and then you have these perfect guys, which is He-Man.“

As he notes, in the early ’80s, there were no real characters on TV, and homosexuality was usually used as a punchline. And so he’s not suggesting that He-Man and Skeletor are supposed to be overtly gay — they’re either the result of coding from the show’s creators, or the product of an unacknowledged subconscious.

„I wouldn’t be surprised if these guys didn’t know what they were doing, if they didn’t have an agenda and they were just sort of making it,“ he says. „Because if you’re just pulling from your subconscious, you’d be pulling all these things.“

“Postcards From Buster”

This PBS show was a spinoff of popular animated series Arthur. In 2005 episode “Sugartime!” Buster goes on a trip to Vermont, where he meets a lesbian couple who run a farm and make maple syrup. (At the time, Vermont was one of the only states to offer same-sex domestic partnerships.) Despite the very tame nature of the episode, Bush-era Education Secretary Margaret Spellings criticized the publicly funded network for “promoting the gay lifestyle.” She demanded the episode be pulled, and it only aired on a few stations nationwide.

“You can be assured that in the future the department will be more clear as to its expectations for any future programming that it funds,” Spellings told the show’s creators.

“Sailor Moon”

Beloved Japanese anime Sailor Moon originally depicted Sailor Neptune and Sailor Uranus as a lesbian couple who often shared tender moments and longing glances.

But when distributors took the show abroad, their relationship got altered: In France, Poland, Italy, and the U.S. portrayed the pair as “close friends” or “cousins.” One Russian network even rewrote Sailor Uranus as a man, and hired a male actor to provide the character’s voice.

“SpongeBob Squarepants”

In 2012, censors in Ukraine tried to ban SpongeBob Squarepants from airing, denouncing the series as a “real threat to children.”

The main gripe of the Ukraine National Expert Commission for Protecting Public Morality was the show’s alleged implications of homosexuality between SpongeBob and best friend Patrick. (The two sea creatures frequently hold hands.)

Officials also cited the show’s large gay fanbase as a reason to nix the series.

“Clarence”

Cartoon Network broke new ground by including a gay couple in this cartoon series in 2014. But fans got irate when they learned a kiss between the two men was censored.

In the original cut, a man greeted his partner in a restaurant with a kiss on the lips. But in the version that aired, it was a chaste peck on the cheeks.

Cartoon Network did redeem itself: A June 2016 episode featured out actors Lea Delaria and Tig Notaro as the voices behind lesbian moms E.J. and Sue.

“Gravity Falls”

A proposed lesbian relationship on Disney’s Gravity Falls was nixed by wary higher-ups, who told creator Alex Hirsch he couldn’t include the couple, even for a brief cameo. The idea came from one of Hirsch’s storyboard artists, he told The Mary Sue in 2014, and it broke his heart to cut it.

“I wanted to set a precedent, and I argued that little things like this could mean the world to people and that anyone who was pissed off deserved to be pissed off,” Hirsch said. “But despite my greatest efforts, it finally came down to, ’Change the scene or we’ll cut it out of the episode ourselves.’”

Hirsch eventually included a gay couple in Gravity Falls: Sheriff Blubs and Deputy Durland, who made history in February 2016 as Disney’s first animated gay couple.

“The Legend Of Korra”

In June 2017, Kenyan officials made headlines after banning a half-dozen cartoon series they deemed “pro-gay.” The list included Nickelodeon’s The Legend Of Korra, the Avatar: The Last Airbender spinoff that concluded with an implied lesbian relationship between protagonists Korra and Asami. (The relationship was later explicitly confirmed in a comic book spinoff.)

Other series barred from the African country included Hey Arnold, Steven Universe, The Loud House, Gravity Falls, and Clarence.

“The Loud House”

In a July 2016 episode, Nickelodeon’s The Loud House briefly briefly featured a pair of married gay dads. It was heralded as a victory by LGBT advocates—but it was deemed “inappropriate” for South African audiences and nixed the scene. But since DStv serves all of Africa, viewers across the continent missed out on the scene.

“Nickelodeon strives to ensure that content respects the varying traditions and family values in each country,” a rep told News 24 Africa.

7 Times LGBT Television Was Censored Around The World

From Wonder Woman to Northstar, here’s your intro to LGBTQ superheroes.

While superhero movies are hardly bastions of queer representation, Marvel and DC Comics feature a surprising number of LGBTQ superheroes—including some A-list characters. We’ve put together this list to introduce some of the most influential gay superheroes, ranging from groundbreaking figures like Marvel’s Northstar to characters like Harley Quinn who only came out in the past few years.

2) Midnighter

Possibly the best-known gay superhero in comic book circles, Midnighter was created as a parody of . When Wildstorm became an imprint of DC, he officially joined the DC universe. This created a rather unexpected overlap with the character who inspired him. In recent years, he has even teamed up with Batman’s sidekick Nightwing.

4) America Chavez

America Chavez, aka Miss America, debuted in the 2011 miniseries Vengeance but only gained her cult following after a subsequent makeover and reappearance in New Avengers. She’s a super-strong badass with the ability to fly and travel to other dimensions—not to mention she has one of the most cosplay-able costumes in the Marvel universe. She’s also bisexual, making her the first LGBTQ Latinx superhero to get her own solo comic, the excellent 2017 series America.

7) Iceman

Iceman is an interesting figure in Marvel canon, and potentially a test case for other queer characters in future. As one of the original X-Men, he was portrayed as straight for decades being outed as gay in 2015. (We say he was outed rather than coming out voluntarily because Jean Grey shoved him out of the closet by reading his mind. It was a whole thing.)

For those who know the X-Men from the movies, he’s the ice-powered teen who dates Rogue in the original X-Men trilogy. Thanks to the X-Men comics’ love of time travel hijinks, there are actually two versions of this character at the moment: A teenage Iceman who realized he was gay after Jean Grey read his mind, and an adult version who stayed in the closet and dated women for years, but came out after being confronted by his younger self. The recent Iceman solo series focused on his life after this revelation, earning a mixed response because while it’s great to see a gay character getting their own comic, his emotional arc is a rather old-fashioned coming-out story.

8) Batwoman

Batwoman has an ironic origin story, given her later role in the comics. She first appeared as Batman’s love interest in the 1950s, shortly after the publication of , a book that accused Batman of homosexual propaganda. In recent years she was rewritten to be gay herself, a controversial decision that led to some problems of its own.

While her comic’s creators wanted her to marry her girlfriend, DC nixed the decision by saying heroes “shouldn’t have happy personal lives,” a dubious statement that sounds pretty ridiculous in the context of, say, Superman. Despite all this, she’s undoubtedly the most high-profile lesbian superhero around with a key role in the Bat-family. In the upcoming TV adaptation, she is played by Ruby Rose.

9) Wiccan & Hulkling

These guys definitely come as a pair. Best known for their role in the Young Avengers comics (yes, we have a lot to thank for that series, which also featured America Chavez and paved the way for Loki: Agent of Asgard), Wiccan is a magical teen hero inspired by Scarlet Witch, while Hulkling’s name is self-explanatory. They’re boyfriends, they’re adorable, and they get embroiled in plenty of relationship drama alongside the sci-fi/fantasy adventures of Young Avengers.

10) Northstar

The X-Men team member Northstar is a groundbreaking figure in superhero comics. Marvel did include a few LGBTQ characters in the background of other comics (take, for instance, Captain America’s childhood friend Arnie Roth). However, Northstar was the first superhero to actually come out.

He’s a Canadian ski champion with the mutant ability to fly. After years of hints, he came out as gay in 1992. In 2012, he married his partner Kyle Jinadu, the first same-sex marriage in superhero comics. At the time it was a highly-publicized event in the X-Men timeline. Since then he has faded from the spotlight. Still, he is forever known for his key role in superhero history.

12) Nia Nal/Dreamer

Played by Nicole Maines in the CW’s Supergirl, Dreamer is the first transgender superhero on TV. She’s a former political speechwriter who becomes Supergirl’s journalistic protege. While her role is groundbreaking, she highlights how far the genre has to go in terms of trans representation.

There are a handfultrans heroes in both DC and Marvel comics (for instance, the Bombshells character Alysia Yeoh, and Squirrel Girl’s friend Koi Boi), but they’re all very obscure compared to the other LGBTQ superheroes on this list. There’s some debate over whether Marvel and DC should go the Iceman route. That would an existing character might come out as trans or a new character could be introduced. Either way, both publishers are lagging behind the times.
