Anderson Cooper's sexual orientation has long been a part of anchor celebrity gossip. Most have assumed for years that he is a homosexual. But, he has never publicly confirmed nor denied this rumors and speculations, until now. He finally publicly came out of the closet today in a recent interview, having this to say:
"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."
He also discusses his reasons for keeping these facts obscured for so long. He writes, "I've always believed that who a reporter votes for, what religion they are, who they love, should not be something they have to discuss publicly."
I like that. I've always respected Anderson Cooper. He is a good anchor and reporter. I'm glad he got to put this behind him, make it official and do it on his own terms.
