Gay Times With Ryan and Jay

Ryan Laytey's got no problem with gays. I mean, it's not like he's a homophobe or anything. As long as they leave him alone, he'll return the favor. If gay people would just stop complaining about their problems and keep their business to themselves, everybody would be happy.

But of course, none of this matters, because Ryan, like any self-respecting 15-year-old male, doesn't hang out with any gay people.

Oh, and while we're on the subject, have you met his best friend, Jay Ambrose?


Gay Times With Ryan and Jay is a comic I created to explore the complex themes of being gay as a teenager and growing up in general. It's mostly (subtle) comedy, though there are a few more dramatic, sad, and (possibly?) romantic moments, which you'll all see soon enough.

*Updates Weekly. Now in Chapter 4, where Ryan and Jay discuss the latter's newly found identity. Currently working on a new cover due to SJ site redesigns; Page 66 pending afterwards. Illustrated Q & A answers are also ongoing.

***Still working on site graphics!

I love this comic! I don't know why I haven't found it sooner.

I can feel compassion and empathy for every character. The writing is really brilliant, with both pathos and comedy. Thanks so much for making it available.
Haha, I've finally caught up with your amazing comic!

Er...yeah, just starting reading your comic a few days ago when I saw it on an ad while reading another webcomic, and I have to say: You're so talented, my dude! Your art is amazing, your characters are extremely likable, and your alt text is pretty funny, too.

I suppose the only thing I regret is finding your comic so late :/ But, finding such a great read is enough to quench even that, haha.
@AdmiralBetas: When Ryan will become Jay's "slutty kitchen wife"? :D
@timefox: From personal experience, I can tell you that that just makes things trickier, lol. It's still quite possible for a material like the one the apron is made of to unravel if only one hand is used, particularly if you're as..."energetic" as Ryan is around Jay. Use two hands and you've got something, but then he'd be stuck in a weird pose. In both cases, his arms would eventually get tired, all the more quickly since Ryan has poor stamina. As usual, it's a no win situation for Ryan~
@AdmiralBetas: He could always use his hands to "hold" it.
@timefox: Ah, good question. The towel configuration would cover everything important, but I'm guessing Ryan would be worried about accidental slippage since the material doesn't "hold" as well as a real towel would. He could fold it up horizontally to strengthen the hold, but then it'd look like he's wearing a miniskirt, ha.
Why doesn't he just wrap the apron around his waist? like a towel. It looks large enough.

@LilyFlare: Ah yes, the Messenger may be familiar to all GTWRAJ readers, though not from GTWRAJ...

And yeah, that's drool.

@OhDearKamiWhy: Sorry for the late reply! Yes, I'm afraid the Messenger has already been sent with the questions, so it's too late for this go around. Feel free to ask more though, as there may be another Q & A coming up~
Moar answering
I think I'll do one more round of Q & A, then another comic page, then alternate from there.

Hmmm, the messenger looks oddly familiar, has detailed information regarding the story, and is that...drool in the last panel?
Is it too late to ask questions for the q & a?
Aww, poor kid was in the shower, probably doesn't even know what was going on
@Ralend: All according to plan...

I don't know what's going on; but, I love it!!!
That command translates into "Get Ryan from 5 hours into GTWRAJ" for you guys. Wanted to get him at a point that won't interrupt the main story.

@M-24: Ah, if only I had the time. I think the promo would go like this, though:

"Action! Drama! Answers to all of life's questions*! Q & A: The Animation! Coming to your area~"

*Questions may be limited to the Author's comics.

My bad, pal.
Got a lot of unsavory people after me with more than just questions, you see.

I'll start answering questions this week.
@Ralend: No problem, I'll get to these questions as well.
oh! I got this wrong.
Ryan: Why you so fucking depressed? Damn man. Cheer up.

Jay: Whats your favorite recipe to cook? Is it maybe red velvet because it makes a certain someone special smile? ;)

Jay's Mom: How trying is having Jay as a son?

Ryan's Mom: When's the last time Ryan smiled at home?
