Anderson Cooper’s gayness has been an “open secret” for years, but the famed CNN anchor has officially gone on record as being out of the closet, which is still a great thing.
 Cooper made the announcement in a letter to Andrew Sullivan, who was doing a story for TheDailyBeast.com about the social impact of famous people who come out as gay, according to TMZ.

Sullivan reached out to Cooper for his thoughts, to which Anderson replied with a letter.

“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,” Cooper wrote.

“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.”
