Gay Marriage Legalized in Riverdale! Archie Comics Features Same-Sex Wedding!Meredith Carroll
If they can do it in Riverdale, why can’t they do it everywhere?
Yes, Riverdale is a fictional town in which cartoon characters live. But this is progress, baby!
Last week, in the comic book, Life With Archie #16, gay character Kevin Keller got married, according to The Huffington Post. Raise a glass to the groom and groom!
Kevin becomes injured while serving in Iraq, and while recovering in a hospital, he meets an African-American doctor, with whom he falls in love.
Kevin was introduced to the Riverdale gang nearly two years ago because he’s supposed to be a reflection of “what’s going on with kids today in the real world,” Archie Comics CEO said in a recent interview with CNN.
The marriage received front page treatment, as all marriages should.
Does Kevin’s marriage — albeit in the funny pages — give you hope for the future of gay marriage? Or is a comic just a comic?
