Inspiration from Neil & David

There are 3 gay couples I look upon as model of gay relationships: Tigguh & Pooh, Mark Feehily (of Westlife) & Kevin McDaid, and Neil Patrick Harris & David Burtka.


I’ve idolized Neil Patrick Harris since his Doogie Howser days. In fact, I got the hobby of keeping an electronic journal from Neil Patrick Harris’ character. When he came out of the closet in 2006, I idolized him more for being brave enough to admit it, in spite of his very successful career as an actor.

He’s been happily married with his lover David Burtka since 2004, and they also have twins (via David) named Gideon Scott, a boy, and Harper Grace, a girl. The twins were born in 2010.


They showed the gay community that it’s really possible for two guys to be deeply in love, live in a monogamous relationship, and in some countries like the United States, adopt babies (or at least have babies through a surrogate mother).

The relationship of Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka is an inspiration for us, Elmer & Oreo. They showed us that a happy, married, gay-couple life is possible.
