It's interesting that Anderson Cooper was named to Out Magazine's Top 50 most powerful gay people in America when he has never actually confirmed that he is gay. Sure, I think it is pretty much an open secret, but there are lots of people who don't know that secret. Plus, can you really be on of the top 50 gay people in America if you have never confirmed you are gay? What if Anderson tells Out that he is straight? To be a powerful gay person, doesn't everyone have to know you are gay?
