bert.jpgThey’re here & they’re queer!!! Congrats to Bert & Ernie who have officially come out of the Sesame Street closet! Mark Saltzman, a writer for the show, confirmed to Queerty.  Bert & Ernie have been on the show since 1969, but Mark began writing for Sesame Street in 1984 & says he wrote Bert & Ernie as a gay couple, who are a reflection of his own same- sex relationship & not about pushing an agenda.
