Don Lemon: I’m Gay … “It’s About The Worst Thing You Can Be In Black Culture”
CNN weekend prime time anchor Don Lemon has come out of the closet in his new book, Transparent.
“I abhor hypocrisy,” Lemon expressed to The New York Times. He also said that as a news reporter his job is to tell the truth and he felt an obligation to be honest about his personal life.
He wishes more people would come out and admits that if he had more predecessors it wouldn’t have taken him 45 years to reveal his sexuality preference.
“I’m scared…I’m talking about something that people might shun me for, ostracize me for…people are going to say: ‘Oh, he was molested as a kid and now he is coming out.’ I get it,” he said.
