How Did Steve Kornacki Come Out As A Gay?
Steve hid half of his life and pretended to be straight even though he was gay. On November 16, 2011, he finally got over his fears and paranoia and came out as gay. He wrote about the whole thing—his story as a gay man—while he was working at a magazine called Salon, which is where his story was published.
He told his family about it a week before it came out, and they told him, “We’re proud of you.”
Kornacki talked about meeting men online in secret in the same story. He met a special guy who was in the same situation as him. He called him “Dan,” even though that wasn’t his real name.
In 2010, Dan, his boyfriend, came out as gay and asked Kornacki to meet his parents. But the American newscaster turned down the offer because he was afraid and lost his loving partner.
This regret, along with the sense of companionship he used to have but lost in the end, led him to come out as gay. He did, and ever since, he’s been very open about being gay.
