Bio: Native Californian and avid motorcyclist Tim Barela began working professionally as a cartoonist in the mid-'70s. In the '80s, Tim's life and career took a turn out the closet door when he decided to give two minor gay characters from an abandoned project their own comic strip. Leonard & Larry was enthusiastically accepted by Gay Comix, and made its first appearance in 1984, appearing in several issues, and in a Gay Comix Special. The strip appeared for many years in the national news magazine Frontiers, and was part of Out of the Inkwell, a four-segment play presented in 1994 by San Francisco's Theatre Rhinoceros. Leonard & Larry has been released in four book collections: Domesticity Isn't Pretty, Kurt Cobain & Mozart Are Both Dead, Excerpts from the Ring Cycle in Royal Albert Hall, and How Real Men Do It.
