Anderson Cooper Comes Out To Andrew Sullivan! You're Welcome
He responded to a querying email from Sullivan by saying, "The fact is, I'm gay."
The CNN star thought being open with those around him was enough all these years because a newsperson shouldn't have to talk about his private life, but now he's decided that there's something valuable in standing up and being counted.
That's what I've been saying all along.
He is now officially out of the closet in every way.
Yay! Thank you, Anderson. That wasn't so hard, was it?
And I don't think I'm that out of line to think that my last EIGHT YEARS of articles--starting way before anyone else dared to go there--were a tiny factor in all of this.
