The controversial Archie Comics issue in which gay character Kevin Keller marries his boyfriend has completely sold out. This is despite anti-gay group One Million Moms threatening boycott on Toys 'R' Us if they refused to pull it from shelves. Sorry Moms, but you might want to consider changing your organization's name to "Bigoted Childowners Who Over-Exaggerate Their Numbers." Congratulations Kevin!

Tokyo Disneyland Says "I Do" to Gay Marriage

Tokyo Disneyland Says "I Do" to Gay Marriage

Although gay marriage has no official status in Japan, this week Tokyo Disneyland announced it would begin allowing same-sex couples to wed on their property. This decision came after 27-year-old Koyuki Higashi inquired if it would be permitted for her to marry her partner there. This announcement is considered groundbreaking in a country where homosexuality is still a taboo topic. Via The Guardian:

Higashi and her partner have visited Disneyland to break their good news to Mickey Mouse, but have yet to set a date for the wedding. "Mickey first looked surprised to hear that we are a couple of girls," she said on her blog. "But we said we were there to thank him … and he celebrated with us."

Disney really does make dreams come true!
