Anderson Cooper Officially Comes Out: 'I'm Gay, Always Have Been'

Anderson Cooper Gay

Anderson, 45, says he ‘couldn’t be any more … proud’ of his sexuality. And we’re proud of him for finally speaking out!

Anderson Cooper‘s sexuality has been a hot topic of conversation for years, and now in an interview with The Daily Beast, the famous newsman is setting the record straight — so to speak. “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 says in a statement.

Anderson has never wanted to make a big issue out of his sexuality, which is why it’s so appropriate that his first official comments appear in a story about public figures casually coming out. It should also be noted that Anderson’s comments about being gay appear as part of a much larger statement to the site.

Ex-Gay Says Homosexuality Caused By His Emotional Trauma Starting at Age 6:

Author and AIDS victim Jerry Arterburn said: “I was involved in the homosexual world as a blatant attempt to obtain the affection from other men that I did not receive from my own father.” (from his autobiography “How Will I Tell My Mother?”)

Due to his sensitive nature, he was more deeply affected than most boys when his own father rejected him early in life. Without a loving father figure, he yearned for affection from other boys by the age of six. His yearning became sexualized at puberty. He said being abused or severely neglected in childhood was “too common a thread to ignore” in the gay community and his female mannerisms were due to his mother, his only role model. He was NOT born gay.
