Bert and Ernie are at long last out ... a "Sesame Street" author is affirming the notable characters are a gay couple. Bert and Ernie have been on the show since it began in 1969, and there's dependably been theory about the genuine idea of their relationship. Stamp Saltzman, who joined the "Sesame Street" group in 1984, cleared everything up by disclosing to Queerty he composed Bert and Ernie as a gay couple.
He says the 'Sesame' team is his very own impression same-sex relationship and not tied in with pushing a motivation. Stamp says he construct Bert and Ernie in light of his association with film manager Arnold Glassman - Mark was Ernie and Arnold was Bert.
Obviously, Bert and Ernie have shared a storm cellar flat at 123 Sesame Street throughout the previous 49 years ... in spite of the fact that they've generally rested in independent beds. In any case, their science - while energetically contending and quarreling - was constantly tangible. Stamp's disclosure may be all the more a convention - the truth of the matter is, Bert and Ernie are long-lasting gay symbols for some in the LGBT people group.
