Sesame Street’s Bert Suggests He May Be Gay



Rumours have circulated for years, but now one of Sesame Street’s most famous icons has himself hinted he is gay.

On the official Twitter page for the show, Bert – who has long raised eyebrows over sharing a bed with room-mate Ernie – referred to himself using a slang word for gay.
Comparing his hairstyle to that of A-Team character Mr T, Bert said: “The only difference is mine is a little more ‘mo’, a little less ‘hawk.'”
The word “mo” is short for “homosexual” in some parts of the gay community.
Broadcasters PBS have not yet commented on the tweet, but it is being seen as evidence the show is taking a more gay-friendly approach.
Bert and Ernie’s relationship has been the subject of speculation for decades.

The Tony-award winning musical Avenue Q parodies the puppets, with one character performing a song called If You Were Gay.
Sesame Street would not be the first children’s entertainment project to feature a gay character.
JK Rowling has said Albus Dumbledore, the former headmaster of Hogwarts School in the Harry Potter series, was gay.
Nickleodeon favourite Spongebob Squarepants has also come under fire in the past over his sexuality – though producers have since insisted he is more “asexual” than anything else.
