The Men of Riverdale Get Homoerotic

Sean Cody? God no! What kind of website do you think this is? It’s actually a scene from Riverdale. No really, it is.

There’s a very good and gay reason why Archie Andrew’s bulge is perfectly lit, zoomed-in on and prominently displayed in the latest episode of Riverdale. ‘The Wrestler’ is the name of the episode and it was directed by New Queer Cinema extraordinaire Gregg Araki.

Riverdale knows its audience well. While their audience does include gay men, majority of their audience falls outside of that demographic. Then why go so heavy-handed on the homoeroticism? Well, aside from the fact that the show is fairly flamboyant as it is, the show’s sexually fluid Generation Z viewers were patiently waiting for a moment like this.







Stay Queer Riverdale!
