Bert & Ernie Celebrate Gay Marriage on New Yorker Cover


Sesame Street‘s Bert & Ernie cover next week’s issue of The New Yorker.

In a story titled, “Moment of Joy.” the lovable pair can be seen watching what looks like a panel of judges on television. This comes after  the Supreme Court  decided to strike down the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA),  which paves the way for gay marriage to resume in California.

“It’s amazing to witness how attitudes on gay rights have evolved in my lifetime,” said Jack Hunter, the artist behind next week’s cover, “Moment of Joy.” Hunter, who originally submitted his image, unsolicited, to a Tumblr, continued, “This is great for our kids, a moment we can all celebrate.”

Although the reference and their image is subtle, it’s clear the beloved muppets are on the cover.
