Robin Roberts Comes Out on Facebook
Popular ABC's Good Morning America co-host Robin Roberts came out on Facebook on Sunday, publically revealing a long shielded romantic life for the first time. She made the following statement in reference to the support she received while battling myleodysplastic syndrome in 2012, "I am grateful for my entire family, my long time girlfriend, Amber, and friends as we prepare to celebrate a glorious new year together." Roberts now joins Jodie Foster, Wentworth Miller, Maria Bello, Jason Collins, and Tom Daley - among others - as a celebrity who has come out in 2013, continuing to stem the evolution of LGBT rights as a dominant political and cultural issue.
