CNN Anchor Anderson Cooper coming out

Anderson Cooper first came out as a gay in July 2012. The news came out as he gave his friend Andrew Sullivan permission to publish the article. In one of the parts of the article, it reads:

 “It’s become clear to me that by remaining silent on certain aspects of my personal life for so long, I have given some the mistaken impression that I am trying to hide something – something that makes me uncomfortable, ashamed or even afraid. This is distressing because it is simply not true.”

At that time, he also mentioned:

 “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.”
