    (CNN) -- "Good Morning America" anchor Robin Roberts used a Facebook post to acknowledge what friends and co-workers have long known: She's gay.
    Roberts, 53, has been very open about her health battles, but she has not previously spoken publicly about her sexuality.

    In an end-of-the-year message posted on her Facebook "like" page Sunday, Roberts wrote: "I am grateful for my entire family, my long time girlfriend, Amber, and friends as we prepare to celebrate a glorious new year together."

    While Roberts did not give her girlfriend's last name, People magazine identified her as Amber Laign, a licensed massage therapist from San Francisco she met through mutual friends a decade ago.

    it's always funny when an older gay comes out the closet and they are praised for their bravery.

    if i was gay, i'd be pissed that these cowards remained hidden and flat out lied about their orientation.



    it reminds me of a story i read years ago. an indian guy (curry) i think he was muslim, had a bunch of wives and mistresses and like a hundred plus kids.
    in his 80s, this asshole renounces sex for a life of abstinence and prayer and he was praised for his sacrifice.

    such a deal. :)

    I agree, it's a bullshit situation for "lesser" gays, or those that come out at the start of their careers. The worst thing about it is that the folks at GLAAD and (especially), the HRC and Out magazine will give them awards for their "courage". :rolleyes:

    Please. She's NO hero. She waited years to come out to not hinder her career. Want to be a true hero? You should have come out Day 1 and run with it; the good, the bad, all of it. But I am sure GLADD and all the others organizations will praise and give her an award. And no doubt ABC will kiss her ass. Sit down honey. You're old news.
