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.
