Kevin Keller has also been in the press recently for winning the 2013 GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Comic Book Series. Archie Comics Publisher and Co-CEO Jon Goldwater weighed in on the historic moment - “We certainly pride ourselves on being contemporary, but that's not the reason why we're showing 'The Kiss.' Just like when Kevin first told Jughead he was gay, it was in the natural course of conversation," said Goldwater. "We are creating this in the same way. It's just part of the story."
