CNN’s Thomas Roberts Comes Out at Gay Journo Confab


I’ve always held a special place in my heart for CNN anchor Thomas Roberts, so I was interested to read a report by Beantown Cuban from the annual National Gay and Lesbian Journalists Association conference that was held in Miami this month.

If he hadn’t made his sexuality known before, he reportedly let it all out in Miami, announcing that the conference was the “biggest step” he had taken to really being out in public, and that he had slowly been coming out at CNN over the years.

Beantown Cuban reports that Roberts (who caused a lot of “swooning in the hotel’s hallways” – no doubt) said he was proud of his partner, and said something that might be taken as words of wisdom to one of his fellow anchors:

“When you hold something back, that’s all everyone wants to know.”

Bravo to Roberts. And if you haven’t tuned in to Headline News to see him, you’d best be touching that dial.
