Found this floating around my Facebook news feed, as my friend so eloquently put it, “it’s about time”.

“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

My thoughts:

It doesn’t change a thing.  As someone who is considering journalism and kind of is one I completely agree with his statement that as a reporter you want to keep your own opinions out of the story for fear of being called biased etc…but again, he is right, it is important that an affluent person like himself not appear to be hiding who he is.
