Archie Comics teen sensation Kevin Keller, the first gay character in the Archie-verse, is a hit with young and old fans alike.

Today Archie Comics writer and artist Dan Parent joins us to break even more exciting news about Kevin Keller- he’s going to get his own four part mini-series due out in summer 2011.

    Hope I can buy one copy here too in the near future. 🙂

  2. Stuffed Animal says:

    Young Gay, Bi and Transpeople are not “queer”. Please smarten up and stop calling them that. It amounts to another form of bullying. You don’t have permission to call anybody “queer” unless they explicitly give it to you, and even then, it’s still a derogatory label.

    • I appreciate your thoughtfulness but the word queer is seldom seen by most people as a derogatory term. As an identity, Queer is widely used to describe those who fit into “all of the above” and “none of the above” when trying to describe the wide variety of sexual and gender identities.

      Many LGBT people have re-claimed the term as a means of self-empowerment. Do you have the same problem with the TV show Queer as Folk?

    • CharlesVer33 says:

      I think it’s you who Stuffed Animal who needs to smarten up. Do you think the tv show Queer Eye for the Straight Guy is bad for young LGBT people simply because they use the word queer in the title? I’m confused by your argument.

      Why focus on the negative?

    • CharlesVer33 says:

      Archie just gave a gay character his OWN series! Celebrate!

    • seawall says:

      Yeah, what Marc and Charles said. I’m a bisexual woman, I call myself queer and most of my GLBTOMGWTF etc friends use the term freely too. It’s just easier than the neverending acronym forms, although QUILTBAG (Queer, Undecided/Up yours, Intersex, Lesbian, Trans, Bi, Asexual, Gay) is cute and may win over my mother-in-law.
