Archie Comics Celebrates Gay, Interracial Wedding
A hearty congratulations to my animated doppelgänger, Archie Comics’ Kevin Keller and his partner. The two have officially tied the knot, marking Riverdale’s first gay marriage. The issue featuring an active U.S. military duty Keller marrying his man goes on sale in January.
Archie Comics, a bastion of Americana, seems to be doing their best to crank Maggie Gallagher’s homophobe alert system to the max. Kevin and his black husband may have pumped the dial up to nosebleed, but word that the wedding issue of Life With Archie also features the titular everyman announcing he is separating from wife Veronica should have the folks’ at NOM’s heads exploding right off of their necks.
Our condolences to Archie and Veronica, and our congratulations to Kevin and his husband.
Now where do fictional gay animated couples honeymoon? Might I suggest Muscle Beach?
