MSNBC News Anchor Thomas Roberts Engagement Photo

MSNBC news anchor Thomas Roberts posed for his engagement photo with longtime partner, Patrick Abner, this weekend.

The couple will marry in New York at the end of September.

When the New York Observer asked him if getting married to a man will hurt his journalistic career, this is what he said:

“I am not objective when it comes to equality. And that means for all. I want it for you, for me, for everybody … It’s written in our Constitution: life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, and what’s wrong with talking about that? Nothing. I think LGBT stories right now are newsmakers. So, no matter if you’re straight, gay or Martian, you’re going to be covering them. Because I am who I am, I can provide a different viewpoint, because people at home might know who I am or where I’ve come from—and that’s O.K.”
