If Bert and Ernie were real, and gay, and in sex therapy, with body image issues, it would look a lot like FELT. My piece in today’s New York Times, behind the scenes from the new LOGO series.
Snoop Dogg, who was asked by The Guardian if Frank Ocean coming out would pave the way for other gay rappers. (His response: “Ocean ain’t no rapper.”) Snoop does, for the record, support same-sex marriage.

Gays with mugs. (What about gay women?)
Today in California, the ban on same-sex marriage was ruled unconstitutional by a federal appeals court. The news reminded us of “Hide/Seek: Difference and Desire in American Portraiture,” the current exhibition up at the Brooklyn Museum. The show, on view through February 12th, explores the role of sexual identity in modern art through a variety of media, including photography. For more selection of photographs, along with captions from the exhibition, visit our Photo Booth blog: http://nyr.kr/AgOCAMAll photographs courtesy of the Brooklyn Museum.
Today is the 13th anniversary of the death of Matthew Shepard, the 21-year-old gay college student from Laramie, Wyo., who was brutally beaten into a coma and left to die, propped up on this fence.
Years before the It Gets Better Campaign, the Trevor Project, or anything remotely close to legalized gay marriage, Shepard’s death galvanized the LGBT community—and others—to demand hate-crimes legislation.
Bert and Ernie just friends? Really?
Bert and Ernie are best friends. They were created to teach preschoolers that people can be good friends with those who are very different from themselves. Even though they are identified as male characters and possess many human traits and characteristics (as most Sesame Street Muppets do), they remain puppets, and do not have a sexual orientation.
Bert could not be reached for comment.
