Out Bert and Ernie PBS/Sesame Street
I just signed the following petition addressed to: PBS/Sesame Street.

Please bring Bert and Ernie out of the closet and add other LGBTQ characters to Sesame Street for educational purposes.

Tens of thousands of kids grow up in households with two moms and two dads. It is time Sesame Street shows these kids families like theirs.

It is also important for our children to be educated that it's okay to be gay. For over 40 years, our beloved Sesame St. characters, Bert and Ernie, have been living as "roomates" and we would like PBS and Sesame Street to allow them to live as a gay couple and maybe eventually, marry. It would show children and their parents that not only is it acceptable but also teach children that homophobia is wrong, bullying is wrong and that Sesame street should recognize that there are LGBT relationships, families, and include them in their show.

Peace and Pride,
