Former Sesame Street Writer Confirms In A Interview That Bert And Ernie Are Gay

Former Sesame Street writer stated  “I always felt that without a huge agenda, when I was writing Bert and Ernie, they were. I didn’t have any other way to contextualize them.”

He went on to say the characters became so popular that some people even referred to Saltzman and his partner,  Arnold Glassman, as “Bert and Ernie.”

“It was the Bert and Ernie relationship, and I was already with Arnie when I came to Sesame Street.”  “So I don’t think I’d know how else to write them, but as a loving couple.”
