Anderson Cooper: “The Fact Is, I’m Gay.”

posted on July 3, 2012

In an email to The Daily Beast’s Andrew Sullivan, CNN reporter Anderson Cooper stated that he is “gay, always have been, always will be.” Sullivan, who is also openly gay, asked Cooper, his longtime friend about whether or not the “visibility of gay people is one of the core means for our equality.” Cooper wrote of his reluctance to publicly acknowledge his sexuality: “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.” He went on to say, “In my opinion, the ability to love another person is one of God’s greatest gifts, and I thank God every day for enabling me to give and share love with the people in my life.”
