Is Judge Dredd gay? Comic tough guy has same sex kiss
Kevin Keller's Gay Kiss: Archie Comics' Dan Parent On Groundbreaking Comic Book Issue | HuffPost
M ichael Bay was in Oxfordshire recently to shoot The Last Knight, the final instalment of the mighty Transformers franchise. But, in another wing of the franchise, the shape-changing robots have been venturing into much less likely territory, exploring such weighty issues as social mobility, personal identity and various corrosive ideologies — while also establishing the world of Transformers as a homonormative society. Fans of Chromedome and Rewind may be touched to learn that the two are now in a romantic relationship. The series is written by Guernsey-based James Roberts, whose background is in the civil service. But, such is the churn of the comics industry, the title was wound down in September at issue 57, the plan being to relaunch it this month as Transformers: Lost Light.

LGBT themes in comics are a relatively new concept, as lesbian , gay , bisexual , and transgender LGBT themes and characters were historically omitted intentionally from the content of comic books and their comic strip predecessors, due to either censorship or the perception that comics were for children. With only minimal attention to LGBT characters in the early part of the century using innuendo , subtext and inference , to out-right acceptance later on and into the Twenty-first century, exploring challenges of coming-out and discrimination in society, LGBT themes in comics reflect the change towards acceptance in worldwide attitudes with homosexuality , cross-dressing and gender dysphoria. Queer theorists have noted that LGBT characters in mainstream comic books are usually shown as assimilated into heterosexual society, whereas in alternative comics the diversity and uniqueness of LGBT culture is emphasized.
Elisa. Age: 26. I am a hot woman and ready to fulfill your desires by hot they can be. I have no limits…
To be honest, a scene involving two comic book characters who are in a long-standing, committed relationship kissing is not interesting. The kiss getting nearly a full page devoted to it is nothing special, especially when one considers the dozens of comic covers published every year depicting the same act. It's something that, unless shamefully gratuitous, I never think twice about while reading my stack of comics every Wednesday. That is -- if the couple is straight.
