When The Nate Berkus Show premiered in September of 2010, the home makeover designer became the first openly gay man to host a nationally syndicated daily TV program. "My sexuality is something I never really hid," he told Out the same year. "It wasn't a situation of wondering if people were going to start digging into my personal life because we've already done that."
