CNN Anchor Richard Quest Speaks About Being Gay from a Personal, Professional Perspective: VIDEO


On Friday night, CNN anchor Richard Quest spoke about being out at work in a segment on Erin Burnett Outfront about gay CEOs.

Said Quest:

Thinking like this saps energy, it drains confidence, it takes a toll on productivity, it’s exhausting! I realize that everyone has their own road to travel in making this decision about when it’s right to come out. I know that in my case, the worst fears never materialized. All in all professionally, I know the work I do here every day is better because I’m honest about who I am.

While some news outlets are saying that Quest is just coming out now, the anchor has been out for some time, although his personal life was thrust in to focus in 2008 when he was arrested on a meth possession charge in Central Park.
