Skip to comments.Is Anderson Cooper Gay?

WTF?! I've been watching CNN's Anderson Cooper's Pro-Gay stories over the past couple of nights regarding Gay to Straight, Straight to Gay, yada, yada yada, conservative bad, liberal good, crap.
Anderson doesn't "appear" Gay, but WTF?!
Anderson Cooper and Boyfriend Benjamin Maisani
He is in whats called the "glass closet", he's gay, but he hasn't made any kind of formal declaration or announced to the world or whatever, but he had attended various functions with a male date, has gone to fundraisers for gay causes, for AIDs fundraisers, etc, and usually is accompanied by a man.
Keep in mind, he holds hands with some of these guys, and he is pretty open and about so its not like he is keeping it a secret, he just skipped the formality of saying he is gay (also, he was named gay man of the year by a gay magazine who didn't realize that he hadn't formally come out, lol).
Personally, I don't really give a crap, and I never understood the whole thing about why its a big deal to gays that they have to formally announce like they are running for President (someone say Mitt Romney ? lol).
Either way, yes, and he isn't hiding it, he just doesn't announce it or talk about it.
I'm not interested, just curious..It blows my mind that a major(?) MSM network would have a gay guy as their news anchor....but then again...
He was tweeting weiners long before he ever got his first computer.
Maybe you can because you were suspicious...
Anderson Cooper’s main squeeze Benjamin Maisani already co-owns gay bar Eastern Bloc in Manhattan’s East Village. Now he’s on the brink of opening a second establishment on Avenue C.
The Village Voice’s Fork in the Road blog reports the joint is called Bedlam Bar and Lounge and is in the space on Avenue C between 3rd and 4th Streets that used to be 40C:
It’s the latest venture by Benjamin Maisani of Eastern Bloc in collaboration with illustrator Pablo Raimondi. The decor is 19th-century parlor chic, with plenty of antique-looking leather-bound books and taxidermy lining the walls. The cocktails will offer subtle twists on classics like Negronis and Side Cars, and will be complemented by a selection of craft beers. Bedlam soft-opens September 16, with a grand opening on October 1.
No word yet if the clientele will be as man-on-man as at Eastern Bloc. If it is, Anderson probably won’t show up, because it’s widely known that he never steps foot in his boyfriend’s bar (unless he’s with Madonna). Maybe it will be a gay bar, but just won’t call itself a gay bar or admit it in public. Yea, that sounds about right.
Since you were interested enough to read the thread, and even to post, I guess I will too, a lot of conservatives care about what the media is pushing onto our culture and families.
You didn’t know?
Boring, no way...Gay too?!
Sheesh, FOXNEWS, say it isn't true!
I thought it was an open secret (and also too much information about someone on a channel I don’t really ever watch).
Skittles and rainbow pooping unicorns, babes!
I swear no!
I guess coming from another generation I was looking for the more obvious infemmenant traits, you know, lisps, the "walk", etc...
Mommy Dearest was Gloria Vanderbilt, correct?
Nah, he just prefers guys to gals.
