Anderson Cooper Comes Out: 'The Fact Is, I'm Gay'

Anderson Cooper has officially come out as gay.

The 45-year-old CNN host wrote a piece for his pal Andrew Sullivan‘s column for The Daily Beast.

“The fact is, I’m gay, always have been, always will be, and I couldn’t be any more happy, comfortable with myself, and proud,” Anderson wrote.

“I have always been very open and honest about this part of my life with my friends, my family, and my colleagues,” Anderson added. “In a perfect world, I don’t think it’s anyone else’s business, but I do think there is value in standing up and being counted. I’m not an activist, but I am a human being and I don’t give that up by being a journalist.”

Head on over to The Daily Beast to read the full piece!

Once a week somebody has to “come out”, and it must have been Anderson’s turn. Congrats!

Not a shocker, good for him for making it official.

No way I had no idea

Did he really need to admit this?

His boyfriend is a hunk!

****** get back in the closet. Homosexuals need to stay in that closet. We don’t need to know about your filthy lifestyle. Yuk

No kidding

Congrats Anderson…..and well said…

we already knew this didn’t we?

@.??:
It used to be a joke when someone said, “All of the good guys are either married or gay.” Now, not such a joke…. haha. It’s about time these fabulous men and women stood up for who they are and are able to live their personal lives (not that it’s any of OUR business) out in the open. When Adam Lambert came out right after Idol, I was thrilled. Why should a man have to spend the most exciting years of his young life pretending? He shouldn’t!! Adam has faced so many obstacles in his career because of his honesty, but I don’t think he regrets it at all. How can you when you spend Saturday night on stage with Queen in front of 250,000 people in Kiev, Ukraine?
Have a great life, Anderson, you’ve earned it..

That’s great! I think everyone knew this but I never cared. Who you love is your choice and he is a great man either way.

@somali girl: and the tard enters
