Hosted by GLAAD and social video network #Waywire, the online chat comes on the heels of Parent’s third consecutive GLAAD Media Award nomination. He is nominated for Outstanding Comic Book for Archie Comics’ Kevin Keller series.
Through the forum, talent can solicit questions from Reddit’s plethora of users. Past participants include President Barack Obama and Bill Gates. #Waywire will produce video responses of certain questions, which will be posted on waywire.com and reddit.com.
The character of Kevin Keller was introduced in the Veronica series in September 2010, had a miniseries in summer 2011 and became the central figure in his own ongoing series in February 2012.
