Out & proud gay Archie Comics character Kevin Keller has been nominated for a 2012 GLAAD Media Award in the Outstanding Comic Book category. It’s his second consecutive nod for the The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation.
With a wildly successful four-issue mini-series under his belt, Riverdale, N.Y.-based Kevin was recently married—to a dude—in a Life With Archie comic earlier this month. His own series launches in February.
I continue to say it: What a wonderful way for queer kids to realize it’s all good to be gay. It’s pretty cool for adults that grew up with Archie, too. *
