Irish cartoonist, writer and performer John Mulvey is the author of ‘The Adventures of Mr. Burns’, which won the 2016 World Fantasy Award.
In a wide-ranging interview with the Irish Times, Mulvey talked about his support for gay rights and his thoughts on the state of gay rights in Ireland.
“I’m a staunch supporter of gay marriage and equality,” he said.
“It’s not the issue for me.
It’s not for any of us.
The issue is the fact that it’s legalised and there’s nothing stopping it.”
When the state gives you a legal right to marry, you’re entitled to marry it.
The same goes for divorce, adoption, civil unions, same-sex marriages.
“And it’s a right to have a family and live in peace.”
Mulvey is also the creator of ‘Wes Anderson’s The Simpsons’, which was released in 2015.
He described it as “the most influential Simpsons animation in the world”.
“I think it’s the most influential animated series ever made.”
If we’re going to do it right, I think the Simpsons are going to be the best animated series of all time.””
I’m very excited for the upcoming animated film.”
