Latest Cover of ‘The New Yorker’ Features Bert & Ernie Cuddling in Response to DOMA News

The July 8th and 15th cover of The New Yorker features an illustration titled “Moment of Joy” that depicts Sesame Street characters Bert and Ernie cuddling in front of a TV showing the Supreme Court of the United States.

Artist Jack Hunter — who made the illustration in response to this week’s Supreme Court ruling that struck down the Defense of Marriage Act — said “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.”
