Anderson Cooper has just revealed that he’s gay and proud.

Cooper made his announcement in a letter to Andrew Sullivan, who was writing a story about the impact of famous people who come out as gay.

When Sullivan asked Cooper for his thoughts, Cooper responded with a letter.

There continue to be far too many incidences of bullying of young people, as well as discrimination and violence against people of all ages, based on their sexual orientation, and I believe there is value in making clear where I stand.

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.

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. I’m not an activist, but I am a human being and I don’t give that up by being a journalist.

One of Freddie’s main complaints was the height difference between him and […]

Why Sloan From ‘Entourage’ Is Still The Wife Every Guy Wishes He Had

It’s completely natural for guys to never get over their first love. But the fact that “Entourage” has been off the air for almost four years, and I still haven’t gotten over Sloan is an entirely different matter. There’s really only been one fictional character to steal my heart with as much vigor as Sloan […]

After stumbling upon the swan exhibit at the Great Bend Zoo in Kansas, […]
