Julio is a gay man living in Springfield.
Julio once lived as a straight man and was married to a woman named Adriatica Vel Johnson. He later came out as gay, and he and Grady became partners and moved in together. They had a three-bedroom apartment, but at one point had lost their third person and were looking for a replacement roommate.
At that time, Julio and Grady met Homer. Homer had found a note that Marge had written before they had gotten married where she said she wasn't sure she wanted to be with him. Upset, Homer decided to move out of the house and went looking for a new place to live. He wandered into Springfield's Gay Neighborhood, saw that Julio and Grady were looking for a roommate, and promptly moved in with them. Eventually Homer moved back home when he discovered that Marge really loved him after all.
Some time after that, Julio and Grady broke up and Julio married Thad, with Homer officiating at their ceremony. Julio later had a flirtatious relationship with a co-worker, a likely indication that he and Thad had separated at some point. Julio later got back together with Grady.
Julio was once a hostage in a bank robbery where Marge was also one of the hostages. He is also a customer at The League of Extra-Horny Gentlemen, a fashionable gay nightclub.
Julio appeared as Michelangelo and led the Gays in Wonder coalition following Springfield’s new SWAT tank.
Julio is a professional photographer. He once took pictures of Marge and her friends, who were making a sexy history-themed calendar for a charity fund-raiser. Marge was reluctant to show any skin at all, so Julio had her drink some wine to loosen up. The wine had a greater effect than Julio had intended, as Marge ended up revealing far more than she had planned. Julio's pictures of Marge's pin-up poses became the talk of the town.
In addition to photography, Julio works as a hairdresser at Hairy Shearers, where Marge Simpson is one of his longtime customers. When Marge came in for an appointment and told Julio about finding her first gray hair, Julio confessed that he had been secretly dyeing her hair blue for years, so that she had never noticed any gray hairs before. To prove it, Julio showed Marge her gray roots beneath the blue-dyed hair, which shocked her.
