Elmo Puppeteer Kevin Clash Comes Out, Denies Sex-Abuse Allegations

I am a gay man. I have never been ashamed of this or tried to hide it, but felt it was a personal and private matter. I had a relationship with the accuser. It was between two consenting adults and I am deeply saddened that he is trying to characterize it as something other than what it was. I am taking a break from Sesame Workshop to deal with this false and defamatory allegation.”

—Sesame Street puppeteer Kevin Clash, a.k.a. the voice of Elmo, addressing his sexuality and recent allegations of a sexual relationship with a male teenager. Clash has a daughter from a previous marriage to a woman.

      He has “never been ashamed of” being gay “or tried to hide it”, but he “has a daughter from a previous marriage to a woman”? Was that back when he wasn’t gay?
