CNN anchor Don Lemon reveals he is gay in new book dedicated to tragic Rutgers student Tyler Clementis

Image Enlarger

CNN news anchor Don Lemon has revealed to the public that he is gay, in a bid to inspire youth to be open about who they are.

The journalist, 45, made the declaration to the New York Times ahead of the release of is inspirational memoir, Transparent, in which he discusses his sexuality.

He dedicated the book to Tyler Clementis - the 18-year-old Rutgers student who jumped to his death after discovering his sexual encounter with another man in his dorm room was streamed on the internet

I have a question:

If Don wants to inspire the youth of today to be open about who they are, then what took him so long? He's 45--or so it says.

Oh as usual here is the answer:

Mr Lemon tweeted a link to his interview with the newspaper on Sunday night, writing: 'wanted to be the firs [sic] to share with u. thanks for your support!!!'

He explained in the interview, published today, 'I think if I had seen more people like me who are out and proud, it wouldn’t have taken me 45 years to say it, to walk in the truth.'

I'd say 30 years is probably more like it but that might be splitting hairs. Anyway--carry on Don and keep up the good work!

Round #2--

Phoenix Suns CEO reveals he is gay in a bid to break down the final prejudice in men's sports

Phoenix Suns president and CEO Rick Welts revealed to the public that he is gay, saying he wants to break down one of the last significant social barriers in sports.

Mr Welts's declaration is the latest development on a subject that has gained attention in the sports world recently, after Lakers star Kobe Bryant's use of a gay slur on the basketball court, and NHL player Sean Avery's public support of same-sex marriage.

Mr Welts talked to NBA commissioner David Stern, WNBA president Val Ackerman, Hall of Famer Bill Russell and Suns guard Steve Nash before discussing his sexual orientation with a reporter from the New York Times.

I wonder if like death, do these kinds of things also come in threes?

Maybe that explains why you and Billy boy fancy long nights in the woods, snipe hunting with men of all ages. 😉
