Steve Kornacki Gay

Steve came out as gay in 2011 in an article on Salon. In the article, he said he didn’t realize he was gay until while in sophomore year of high school.

“I was at a basketball game, and the guys around me started pointing out cheerleaders from the other team they thought were hot. I began to wonder: Why wasn’t I looking at the cheerleaders that way? And why was I sometimes noticing the other team’s players instead? My heart rate quickened and my mind spun until a thought surfaced: This is what it means to be gay.”

He added that he didn’t fit the stereotypes of gay men. “I remember seeing drag queens and men dressed in skimpy attire and thinking to myself: Get me out of here so I can watch a baseball game. I just didn’t fit the stereotypes of gay men. I was an ESPN addict as far back as elementary school. I’d also had early crushes on girls. So my epiphany at that basketball game was as sudden as it was incompatible with my self-image. I fought it relentlessly.”

Steve Kornacki Pants

Steve’s khaki pants got noticed by the viewers during his coverage of the 2020 presidential election. The pants inspired internet memes. He buys the khaki from Gap and after the revelation Gap saw a surge in search for khakis and reported a 90% unit-sale increase online and a dramatic traffic boost .

Gap reached out to Steve offering to gift him free khaki for a lifetime but he declined the offer and instead they donated to the Boys and Girls Club of America to what they call their Workforce Readiness program.

“Gap got in touch with me and they said, ‘We would like to give you free khaki pants for a lifetime.’ Now, I go through about one pair of pants every five or 10 years. That’s much too big of a gift for me to be accepting, so I said, ‘Thank you, but no thank you,” then the Gap said, ‘Well, we have something else in mind.’ Instead of giving me pants, [they’re] going to go to the Boys and Girls Club of America to what they call their Workforce Readiness program.”
