The children’s show Sesame Street continued its ongoing celebration of LGBTQ Pride Month this week despite backlash over past tweets. Sharing the multi-colored progress pride flag amid smiling flowers, the official Sesame Street account on Twitter celebrated the month as a time of “inclusion” and other cherished woke buzzwords.
“On our Street, we celebrate inclusion, belonging, and freedom of authentic self-expression. Happy #PrideMonth to all the people in our neighborhoods!” it said.

As Breitbart News reported, Sesame Street already wokeified itself earlier this month with a series of posts extolling LGBTQ Pride when it featured queer actress Ariana DeBose talking alongside Elmo.
“Hi! Elmo and I wanted to share that everyone is always welcome on Sesame Street,” DeBose said. “This month and every month, we want to uplift and celebrate our LGBTQIA+ family, friends, and communities.” Elmo added, “From our Sesame Street family to yours, happy pride. Elmo loves you.”
“Everyone is always welcome on Sesame Street. Let’s celebrate LGBTQIA+ people in our communities this Pride and every day! Happy #PrideMonth,” the official account caption said.

In another post, Sesame Street shared a graphic of various puppets holding hands so that their colors form the rainbow flag.
“This #PrideMonth, let’s celebrate diversity and unity and spread love and acceptance. Together, we can make the world a kinder place for all,” it said.

Also this month, Disney’s The Little Mermaid star Melissa McCarthy had a starring role in West Hollywood’s LGBTQ Pride Parade that featured explicit BDSM sex acts.
“Melissa McCarthy wore a headpiece with the words ‘Say Gay’ as she rode her own float during the parade, which took over a large section of Santa Monica Boulevard running through the heart of West Hollywood,” Breitbart News reported.
