It's been interesting to watch the town of Riverdale grow from its humble and naive beginnings to a town as progressive as it is now. I used to live in a place called Riverdale (it's a neighborhood in the Bronx) and it's not nearly as vibrant and inclusive as the one in Archie comics.
In the latest issue of Life With Archiehe first gay character in the Archie Comics world, Kevin Keller, marries his partner. In the storyline, Kevin returns to Riverside as an adult after serving in the Army and eventually ties the knot with Clay Walker.
Archie Comics co-chief executive Jon Goldwater said last year
Archie’s hometown of Riverdale has always been a safe world for everyone. It just makes sense to have an openly gay character in Archie comic books.
So congrats to Kevin and Clay on their nuptials!
