Anderson Cooper the respected journalist and anchor who is well known for his brave coverage of some of the most devastated war zones has finally put years of speculation to rest and come out recently as being gay.
Alert the media!
You may as well have written Ray Charles was blind!
This is about as news breaking as when Elton John came out as gay...lol
Cooper shared some of this thoughts that brought about his decision, "It’s become clear to me that by remaining silent on certain aspects of my personal life for so long, I have given some the mistaken impression that I am trying to hide something -- something that makes me uncomfortable, ashamed or even afraid. This is distressing because it is simply not true."
He went on to share the escalating counts of bullying also added to his decision to finally step out of his chic and tastefully decorated closet. "I’ve also been reminded recently that while as a society we are moving toward greater inclusion and equality for all people, the tide of history only advances when people make themselves fully visible."
I know that it is everyone's personal journey in dealing with their sexuality but I am glad Cooper finally came out. He is showing so many young gay folks that you can be successful and achieve anything you want in life.
Maybe now Kathy Griffin will cut him some slack....lol
Score one more for the team!
