Kevin Keller's First Gay Kiss

Archie Comics' first gay character Kevin Keller had his first kiss today.

In Kevin Keller issue 10, Kevin kisses his boyfriend, Devon, in a diner, and another patron 'gets offended'. Author-artist Dan Parent told the Associated Press that he came up with the idea for the story after the right-wing group One Million Moms objected to a comic depicting Kevin’s future same-sex wedding. The group lobbied Toys “R” Us to not display the issue prominently, but the retailer refused, and the issue eventually sold out its print run.

Kevin Keller issue 10 is available for purchase today.
