Out Magazine gave readers the chance to vote for Gay Man of The Year and none other than Anderson Cooper won the title.
Anderson only officially came out of the closet last July when he told The Daily Beast:
"The fact is, I'm gay, always have been, always will be, and I couldn’t be any more happy, comfortable with myself, and proud…In a perfect world, I don't think it's anyone else's business, but I do think there is value in standing up and being counted."
You've influenced so many lives this year with your openness and bravery. We couldn't dream of a better suited winner!
Congrats!! Now go get a celebratory crotch kiss from Kathy Griffin.
