In one of the most unsurprising announcements ever,  Anderson Cooper has finally admitted that he is gay.

Anderson Cooper came out in a letter to Andrew Sullivan who was given permission by Cooper to publish it.

I love Anderson Cooper because he giggles his ass off on national news and is one of the few big time anchors who acts like a regular guy even though he has a rather esteemed pedigree (his mom is Gloria Vanderbilt).

It’s no surprise that Anderson Cooper is gay, what is surprising is that he was able to keep it out of the news for as long as he did. Having been pulled into my fathers closet I would never out anyone or want them to come out  if they weren’t comfortable, I do think that public figures and celebrities can do a lot of good by coming out.

Welcome out of the closet, Anderson!
