Robin Roberts Comes Out

Good Morning America Anchor Robin Roberts came out today on Facebook, in a post acknowledging her longtime girlfriend. Roberts recently battled cancer and a bone marrow transplant and has long been an American household favorite in the morning show timeslot. In 2012, she did an interview with President Obama where he embraced same-sex marriage publicly for the first time (which would have been awesome had she came out then). Many have long known Robin Roberts was gay, but like Anderson Cooper, she kept it quiet for quite some time, until today. So far, Roberts has received an overwhelmingly positive response on Facebook. It will be interesting to see if it is brought up on the air at all. Congratulations, Robin. We love you and welcome you out of the closet!
