Sesame Street added two gay characters in a recent episode of the children’s entertainment program.
The episode, which aired on HBOMax Thursday, introduced viewers to Nina’s brother Dave, his husband Frank, and their daughter Mia as the characters celebrated “Family Day.”
Alan Muraoka, who co-directed the episode and also plays an eponymous store owner on the show, celebrated the addition of the gay characters on Facebook, writing that he was “honored and humbled” to have directed the “milestone” episode of the program. Source: Washington Examiner
