Archie Comics To Feature A Gay Wedding When Kevin Keller Ties The Knot


Wedding bells are going to ring in Riverdale!

Last year, Archie comics caused a stir when they introduced their first gay character — Kevin Keller. Now, the recent announcement that Keller will get married in the January issue has sparked off an international debate. While many feel the first gay wedding in Riverdale marks a milestone, there are some who think it’s an unnecessary move by the publishers.

The wedding will be featured in #16 of the Life with Archie series, with the entire gang returning to their hometown to celebrate the nuptials.

Meanwhile the the Family Research Council said this: “It’s unfortunate that a comic book series usually seen as depicting innocent, all-American life is now being used to advance the sexual revolution.”

  1. As a kid in Junior High I remember hearing people complain about the religious overtones in the Archie comics, with people saying that they don’t need to have that “Chrisitan-stuff” pushed on them.

    Interesting how things have changed, eh?
