Archie Comics Announces 1st “Openly Gay” Character


According to the AP, Archie Comics the home of Archie and the rest of the gang at Riverdale High will be introducing their first “openly gay” character. The character, Kevin Keller is introduced by defeating Jughead in a burger eating contest, also winning him the affection of Veronica. That caused him to wrestle over how to gently rebuff her flirtations.

Archie Comics, which was started in 1939 has someway found out how to stay relevant and entertaining. Jon Goldwater, co-CEO of Archie Comics, says the introduction of Kevin is “about keeping the world of Archie Comics current and inclusive.”
