CNN anchor Don Lemon, who spent several years as a reporter and weekend anchor at NBC10, reveals that he is gay in his new memoir "Transparent."

“I abhor hypocrisy,” Lemon told the New York Times about his decision to come out.  “I think if you’re going to be in the business of news, and telling people the truth, of trying to shed light in dark places, then you’ve got to be honest. You’ve got to have the same rules for yourself as you do for everyone else.”

Lemon, 45, last made headlines in September when he admitted on air that he had been the victim of sexual abuse as a child by someone close to him while reporting on a story on the allegations against Georgia pastor Eddie Long.
