Anderson Cooper will be competing for the LGBT-youth nonprofit the Trevor Project when he join’s Jeopardy!‘s Power Players Week next Friday, May 18.
The celebrity-driven competition sees Cooper going up against New York Times columnist Thomas L. Friedman and NBC News Capitol Hill correspondent Kelly O’Donnell. That’s some serious thinkers right there.
Cooper has covered gay issues as thoughtfully as MSNBC anchor Thomas Roberts, but while Roberts is out (and delaying setting a date for his wedding to his fiance), Coop has always kept mum on his sexuality under the guise of “journalistic objectivity,” despite hosting a daytime talk show and writing a book about his mom.
Next time we see AC, should we congratulate him on being a straight ally?
