James Asal Jr: Creator of Adam and Andy

By Antonio Capurro - Gay Agenda

I learned about Adam and Andy 6 years ago when I was doing my research about gay comics online. At that time I was working in Lima, the capital of Peru, managing the section called “Lima Gay” for a very open minded web site. When I saw Adam and Andy I fell in love with the likable characters. Since I was a boy, I very much enjoyed reading my favorites such as Superman, Batman or Spiderman. They fulfilled my fantasies of superheroes because even when I would dream, those were the gay males in my mind and I always wished I could have that kind of story. Finally, I found Adam and Andy and thier creator James Asal Jr.

I never imagined that years later I would have the opportunity to interview him. Going into an artist’s world is always to a new opportunity to discover a fascinating and powerful mind. Artist tend to havesensitive souls that carry a huge spectrum of ideas.

James is a skillful, talented and very nice man. A person committed to his ideas and art. He is a cartoonist, an illustrator, a gay artist who got the inspiration and the courage to give us a wonderful gay comic.

80 ways for being anonymous by showing everything

The Era of Internet 2.0 has given us the opportunity to broadcast and publish our private life to everyone, nevertheless some of us find very creative ways of showing and hiding at the same time.

Masculine sexuality often becomes a field where appereances, power, fear and shame work together at the same time.

The self image of the contemporary male is powerful but fragile at the same time. We have been taught to look strong, invencible, corageous, assertive and powerful no matter what. Is this the real contemporary male? what happens beneath the muscles, the hair, the bellies, the beards?. It seems we have not seen it already. More at

Love and Masculinity

Image from the Exhibition by: Carlos Gutierrez Solana
It is a good opportunity to re-take this blog born from the universal love project, thinking about the Masculine Role in contemporary societies.

A role that has been changing very slowly. A "comfortable" role for most men who apparently get the power, the money and the rights in most cultures and who have never questioned it or re-examined it.

From here and with the basis of the historical research on sexual diversity I extend an invitation to think about a new masculinity that may open the opportunity to affection, vulnerability, shared power and opportunities। A masculinity that is not afraid of sharing the privileges and that aims to build societies hand by hand with femininity and all other possible gender identities.
