Award-winning journalist Anderson Cooper has announced to the world,“The fact is, I’m gay.” Here is an excerpt from Cooper’s long statement to Daily Beast writer Andrew Sullivan:
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.
I’ve also been reminded recently that while as a society we are moving toward greater inclusion and equality for all people, the tide of history only advances when people make themselves fully visible. 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.
Cooper’s coming out has inspired me to also speak my truth. Dear AE world, I’m a lesbian! Love, Bridget. Wow, it feels so good getting that off my chest, although my wife isn’t all that impressed with my announcement.
