Everybody else’s would be helpful, too.
I have a webcomic. http://gao.keenspace.com (No, I’m not spamming.)
One of the main characters in Gao is gay, and so’s his boyfriend. I’m not gay, and I don’t know any gay guys very well. I am aware that there are messy issues around homosexuality in American culture. I’m not good at dealing with issues; they make me uneasy. Maybe even paranoid.
At any rate, I’d be gratified if some folks could take a look at the strips I’ve done that involve homosexuality and tell me if I’m doing ok. I don’t think I’ve been offensive or unrealistic, but, well, how would I know?
Read as much or as little of the strip as you want; all opinions are welcome.
Really sketchy elementary backdrop:
Gao and Ai are the tall guy in the hat and the short guy, respectively. Like all the humans in my strips they’re based on Chinese characters because I can’t draw. They were created to be characters in a comic strip and escaped. They’re still in a comic strip obviously, but it’s a better one. The duck is a duck who lives with them. He’s not exactly a pet.
Kevin is their roommate. He’s an alien who had an accident and is now a cybernetic floating head. He’s also gay.
In a recent plot arc, Kevin met a human named Yuan who is gay and attracted to aliens and they went out.

Thanks for input anyone has, on the gay issue or anything else.
