Representation of LGBT+ characters in comic books was all but obsolete until recently. One of the most groundbreaking characters in comics history, Kevin Keller, made waves as the first openly gay character when he made his 2010 debut in Archie Comics. Created by Dan Parent, this iconic character has offered the queer representation so desperately needed in today’s mainstream comics. Join Dan Parent, the creator of Kevin Keller, for a conversation with moderator Ulysses Campbell about how this character’s impact has been felt far and wide within the LGBT+ community.
