The 53 year old CNN anchor recalled coming out to some of his high school friends but he didn’t “come around to really loving” the fact that he was gay until he graduated from Yale in 1989. He remembers struggling a bit during his college years with his interests as he wanted to join the military but was concerned about his “safety” being a gay man.

He came out in an online letter in 2012 stating, “The fact is, I’m gay, always have been, always will be, and I couldn’t be any more happy, comfortable with myself, and proud,” he wrote.
