Kevin Keller as Casey Cott on Riverdale

I happened to be only a little amazed (and , become truthful, excited) whenever a Bumble was got by me notification showcasing a competition to win a date with Riverdale star K.J. Apa. It appeared like safe promotion: One happy fan would invest a single day volunteering with Archie Andrews. But we started initially to concern the news partnership whenever so-called feminist relationship app Bumble began appearing when you look at the CW adaption of this Archie book series that is comic.

Riverdale’s steamy moments that are intimate in the same way impractical as the show’s convoluted plots.

The actual only real teen who is depicted fumbling through relationship is Kevin Keller (Casey Cott), Betty’s (Lili Reinhart) friend that is best as well as the first-ever homosexual character into the Archie world.

The introduction of an app that is dating a significant, all-too-rare minute of solidarity in a show where queer figures are awarded few freedoms to convey on their own. Continue reading
