Anderson Cooper Reveals He's GAY
Anderson Cooper is making headlines today and putting rumours to bed once and for all.
"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,"
The CNN journalist and son of Gloria Vanderbilt told The Daily Beast columnist and gay rights activist Andrew Sullivan.
Even though my job puts me in the public eye, I have tried to maintain some level of privacy in my life. Part of that has been for purely personal reasons. I think most people want some privacy for themselves and the people they are close to. But I've also wanted to retain some privacy for professional reasons," Cooper said, citing safety reasons since his job takes him to war zones and other dangerous places.
"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.
As long as a journalist shows fairness and honesty in his or her work, their private life shouldn't matter," continued the Anderson Cooper 360° host.
