Well, let's just say while people speculated(falsely) about Bert and Ernie being gay...Scooter on the other hand... Yeah, and the sad thing his death wasn't even covered in the mainstream news media, except for gay publications. But yes, the Muppets and Jim Henson's creations are loved amongst the G/L communities as the Muppets have always been a celebration of differences. Obviously, a kind of crass gay themed puppet show by JHC isnt going to go over well with a lot of people, but neither would a crass straight show by them. I think in retrospect, that's why they sold off the Muppets...not so much out of spite, but out of frustration. Brian Henson and company wanted to be freed up to do any projects they want, NOT ocnstrained by simply being tv-G. I just feel they should sold to a different company than Disney.
