Anderson Cooper Talks About When He Accepted Being Gay

Anderson Cooper has been openly gay for years, but he’s now opening up about when he finally accepted to himself that he was gay.

The 53-year-old CNN anchor spoke to viewers during the Full Circle event that aired on Monday night (January 11).

Anderson said that he knew “something was up” when he was only seven-years-old.

“I mean, I was probably, I don’t know, 7, when I kind of realized — I’m not sure I knew the word ‘gay’ at the time, but I realized something was up. Something was different,” Anderson said (via People).

Anderson came out to some people while in high school, but it wasn’t until college that he fully embraced his sexuality.

“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 said. “You know, I kind of struggled in my teenage years, certainly, but even a little in college… a lot of the things I wanted to do at the time, you couldn’t be gay.”
