So if you haven't heard already...
this open e-mail to Andrew Sullivan which includes these words:
“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.”
Anderson Cooper, I am so proud of you. He has always been one of my heroes in the world of television news and journalism. Always has been, always will be.
You know something… what’s funny to me is that with all the pictures of him
out in public with a guy and stuff what actually made it click for me
was his friendship with Kathy Griffin, seeing the way they click together, especially on the New Year's Eve shows. I love their relationship.
It’s so sweet and hilarious.
And forget these facetious “FINALLY” headlines. Coming out is a
personal journey. If this announcement was too slow for some, well then
that’s too bad for them. While a lot of us say with some people “duh” or
“we already know”, it’s about personal liberation. It doesn’t matter if
I knew or if anyone else knew beforehand. What matters is that he said it when he
felt like it, and that he felt comfortable about doing it.
