Anderson Cooper Shares His Coming Out Story

Anderson Cooper, during CNN’s Full Circle was asked by a viewer “How did you learn to accept being gay? How old were you?”

“I’m not sure I knew the word ‘gay’ at the time, but I realized something was up. Something was different,” he began. Anderson knew from an early age that he was different compared to the people around him but it wasn’t until much later in life where he learned to accept who he authentically was and is.

“I think I really, truly accepted it — and not just accepted it, but fully embraced it and you know, came around to really loving the fact that I was gay — would probably be right after college,” he continued.
