Sesame StreetCelebrity of the week: 

CNN anchor Anderson Cooper will receive the Vito Russo Award from the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation. Every year, the award is given to an openly gay, lesbian or transgender media figure who promotes gay equality. After Cooper’s sexuality was questioned for numerous years, he announced he was gay in July 2012 to fellow journalist Andrew Sullivan of The Daily Beast. In an email to Sullivan,  Cooper wrote, “The fact is, I’m gay, always have been, always will be, and I couldn’t be any more happy, comfortable with myself and proud.” Cooper will receive his award at the 24th Annual GLAAD Media Awards in New York City on March 16, which will be hosted by pop diva Madonna.
