Robin Roberts

P.S. I'm Gay

12/30/2013 7:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

robin-roberts-gettyRobin Roberts just officially came out of the closet ... telling the world she's gay and has a longtime girlfriend.

Robin just recounted her triumphs over the last year on her Facebook page ... talking about her battle with cancer and how she overcame the odds and regained her health.

In the middle of her Facebook essay she said, "I am grateful for my entire family, my long time girlfriend, Amber, and friends as we prepare to celebrate a glorious new year together."

It's kind of cool the way she did it, she didn't scream it from the mountain tops ... but she revealed her true self in an authentic way.

Good for Robin.

Yeah, not surprised. Not a big story here. I admire Robin, not for coming out, but for who she is as a person.

Wow, so many judgmental people on this website. No one asked for your approval for her relationship or orientation. This isn't the 50's anymore, people. Stop being hypocrites.

Truth    

"No one asked for your approval for her relationship or orientation" ---- Gays don't "ask" for anything. They DEMAND it. Anyone that doesn't follow the indoctrination program gets branded.

Everybody on earth is sexual whether you agree with it or not. Some people know what they want, others try to live like they think they know what they want. Everybody likes sex, even if it's by themselves. What two consenting adults do behind closed doors is nobody's business but theirs. If you're trying to figure out how Robin Roberts or anyone else attracted to the same sex "does it," I would say you have a dirty mind.
