Meagan Fitzgerald, an anchor on NBC‘s Washington DC affiliate News4, spoke about Pride months on air and revealed that to her LGBT Pride is a personal issue because she is romantically connected with a woman named Kelly, who proposed her just a day before and will soon become her wife. ““I want to take a moment to acknowledge Pride Month and the fact it’s not always easy being gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender. There’s the coming out process, finding out who you are, being comfortable in your own skin and your own truth. It takes courage to be your true, authentic self, no matter who you are. But to the boys and girls watching, to the men and women who may still be struggling, it’s worth it,” she said, adding that for her it also was not easy to come in terms with her queer identity, but now she is very happy, in love and engaged. Messages of congratulations for the anchor flooded in from news team colleagues and viewers after she shared the news on-air.
