Anderson Cooper "The Fact Is, I'm Gay." It's not something he tells people to push an agenda, it's just part of his life that he is happy with. He doesn't hide it nor does he push it. That is a future I'd like to see, where it doesn't matter at all as long as you love people, and are loved in return.
I don’t, honey. I’m sorry, I just can’t let that go past. Deep, deep, deep down I know that dream was never mine. And I wept and I cried and I fought and I stormed, but I just knew it. I was Black. I was female. And I was out—out—by any construct wherever the power lay. So if I had to claw myself insane, if I lived I was going to have to do it alone. Nobody was dreaming about me. Nobody was even studying me except as something to wipe out.” Audre Lorde to James Balwin on The American Dream.
