Perez Hilton on why he thinks Anderson Cooper and others should be publicly out
Anderson Cooper has never publicly discussed his sexuality.
But he, once again, made the Out Power 50 List which was unveiled today.
Perez Hilton says in an interview that Cooper should be more open.
‘Look at someone like Anderson Cooper who even Out Magazine has reported as being gay,’ Hilton says in an interview with BigThink.com that surfaced on YouTube this week. ‘Has Anderson Cooper come out? No. That’s his choice. He’s going to remain in the closet even though everybody knows he’s gay. And that’s okay because it’s his story to tell if and when he’s ready.’
Until then, Hilton indicates that Cooper’s private life is fair game.
‘That doesn’t mean the gay media – myself included – shouldn’t talk about Anderson Cooper being in the closet and [that] we shouldn’t talk about how much better it would be for the community and for him if he were open.’
