Mister Rogers Came Out of the Closet and We Missed It

By

It feels like Fred Rogers — better known to most as Mister Rogers, everyone's friendliest childhood neighbor — is having something of a resurgence thanks to Morgan Neville's award-winning Won't You Be My Neighbor and the upcoming biopic that will star Tom Hanks as the former minister turned TV personality.
