Anyone who is surprised that Anderson Cooper is gay has clearly been living under a rock.
The fact is, I'm gay, always have been, always will be, and I couldnít be any more happy, comfortable with myself, and proud.
I have always been very open and honest about this part of my life with my friends, my family, and my colleagues. 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. Iím not an activist, but I am a human being and I don't give that up by being a journalist.
Come on -- everyone has known this for years. And to be honest, few people have cared about it for equally as long. He seems to be an nice, intelligent professional guy. As long as he keeps being that, Cooper I don't care. He is a perfect contrast to Don Lemon, who is everything that that Cooper is not -- look at Lemon's thinly disguised activism in his supposedly objective journalism. I'd love to see fewer Lemons and more Coopers.
