Yesterday, we congratulated and thanked CNN news anchor Don Lemon for courageously coming out of the closet, detailing his history of being sexually abused as a child, and telling the story of being a “double minority,” as a gay black man, in his new book Transparent. Later in the day, he sat on the other side of the anchor’s chair on his own network for his first television interview on the subject. I consider this Must See Teevee.
What a stellar role model he is. Oh, and by the way, did you notice that he used the phrase “pray away the gay”? Where did that phrase come from, I wonder?! So, if you’re out there reading, Don, thanks.
