Silver fox and noble newser Anderson Cooper has revealed to his friend Andrew Sullivan at The Daily Beast what the world already knew: he’s gay.
In a heartfelt and honest email, Cooper wrote about how he has always tried to maintain some level of privacy surrounding his personal life and, as the competent journalist he is, would rather focus on telling other people’s stories.
"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,” Cooper wrote in the email he allowed Sullivan to share publicly.
"The fact is, I’m gay, always have been, always will be and I couldn’t be more happy, comfortable with myself and proud.”
