Archie Comics has revealed that gay character Kevin Keller's marriage will not only be mainstream comics' first same-sex union, it will also be interracial.

The comics company has unveiled the cover of the January issue of Life With Archie, a series dealing with the post-high school lives of Archie and his friends in the town of Riverdale, showing Kevin and his African-American husband, Clay Walker, in front of a "Just Married" banner.

Kevin, the son of a military officer, becomes a soldier himself as an adult, is wounded in action, and Clay is one of the hospital staffers treating him. The wedding issue portrays their story in flashback. Archie Comics co-CEO Jon Goldwater recently told Comics Alliance, "This story touches upon a number of topical issues, including ['don't ask don't tell'], gay marriage, and really connects with my overarching message about Riverdale: It's a safe place that is welcoming to everyone, and will always be that."

Trudy Ring is The Advocate’s senior politics editor and copy chief. She has been a reporter and editor for daily newspapers and LGBTQ+ weeklies/monthlies, trade magazines, and reference books. She is a political junkie who thinks even the wonkiest details are fascinating, and she always loves to see political candidates who are groundbreaking in some way. She enjoys writing about other topics as well, including religion (she’s interested in what people believe and why), literature, theater, and film. Trudy is a proud “old movie weirdo” and loves the Hollywood films of the 1930s and ’40s above all others. Other interests include classic rock music (Bruce Springsteen rules!) and history. Oh, and she was a Jeopardy! contestant back in 1998 and won two games. Not up there with Amy Schneider, but Trudy still takes pride in this achievement.
