Don Lemon

CNN weekend primetime anchor Don Lemon, who had been open about his sexuality with colleagues and friends, came out to the public in the book Transparent.  He told the New York Times: "I think it would be great if everybody could be out.  But it’s such a personal choice. People have to do it at their own speed. I respect that."  He added, "I think if I had seen more people like me who are out and proud, it wouldn’t have taken me 45 years to say it, to walk in the truth.”
