Anderson Cooper is out...

Of the Closet. Who didn't see that one coming.

Anderson Cooper: "The Fact Is, I'm Gay."

Last week, Entertainment Weekly ran a story on an emerging trend: gay people in public life who come out in a much more restrained and matter-of-fact way than in the past. In many ways, it's a great development: we're evolved enough not to be gob-smacked when we find out someone's gay. But it does matter nonetheless, it seems to me, that this is on the record. We still have pastors calling for the death of gay people, bullying incidents and suicides among gay kids, and one major political party dedicated to ending the basic civil right to marry the person you love. So these "non-events" are still also events of a kind; and they matter. The visibility of gay people is one of the core means for our equality.

All of which is a prelude to my saying that I've known Anderson Cooper as a friend for more than two decades. I asked him for his feedback on this subject, for reasons that are probably obvious to most. Here's his email in response which he has given me permission to post here:

was watching a 'live feed' from Libya he was interviewing a guy who only had a lighter pistol. You hear in his broadcast the whistle incoming shells, fallowed by a few seconds blackout with the guy holding a new real life pistol and Anderson with a bulge in his back.

I have a good deal of respect for Mr. Cooper. The giants of American journalism are all gone; but he is certainly among the best of the rest.
