Yes, Anderson Cooper is gay and the message is coming directly from him this time.Its not really a shocker to us over here listening to CNN anchor Anderson Cooper confirming that he is gay. We have always suspected that Anderson Cooper is gay by his obvious uncomfortable levels when a woman touches him, complements him or makes a flirtatious move towards him.
Anderson’s sexual preference for men shined through every time we saw his interaction with women and how he tries to smoothly push off their advances. Even more to garner suspicion of Anderson’s love for men, never did we hear Anderson talk about having a wife or girlfriend. It has been rumored for a long-time that Anderson is gay and we suspected it the first time we laid eyes on him, observed his interaction with women and listened to him speak on various topics.
Anderson would have you all know that he was never in the closet with his sexual preference for men, here is what he said in a letter to Andrew Sullivan who was reportedly doing a story about the social impact of famous people who come out as gay:
“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,”
And he continued:
“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.”
And more from Anderson on being gay:
“I have always been very open and honest about this part of my life with my friends, my family, and my colleagues. In a perfect world, I don’t think it’s anyone else’s business, but I do think there is value in standing up and being counted. I’m not an activist, but I am a human being and I don’t give that up by being a journalist.”
There has been much talk about Anderson and his boyfriend, who the person really is, we don’t know as he has been connected to different men.
Clearly Anderson feels we are all stupid, because we have never once heard him come out before the public declaring that he was gay as his fellow co-worker Don Lemon did. Don Lemon being gay was an announcement he made on CNN, which shocked. At the end of the day, Anderson’s confession of announcing that he is gay changes nothing- Juicy Tings will still continue to watch and support AC360 as Anderson is the best at what he does in providing the news in his own unique way.
