Mentions

  • The magazine's July 8 & 15, 2013 cover featured an illustration of Ernie and Bert cuddling by a TV set watching news of the Supreme Court of the United States. The cover appears in conjunction with the court's rulings in favor of equality, pertaining to the historic "Defense of Marriage Act" and "Proposition 8" rulings that took place on June 26, 2013. Cover artist Jack Hunter is quoted saying this about the unsolicited piece, titled "Moment of Joy," that was originally submitted to a Tumblr:
It’s amazing to witness how attitudes on gay rights have evolved in my lifetime. This is great for our kids, a moment we can all celebrate.[1]
