"Good Morning America" anchor Robin Roberts recently stepped out with long-time girlfriend Amber Laign to support GLSEN, an organization that helps make schools safer for lesbians, gays, bisexual and transgender students.

On Monday, Roberts took her excitement to Twitter where she shared a rare photo of herself with her girlfriend and some of the students at the GLSEN Respect Awards held in New York City, People reported.

Roberts captioned the photo, "Honored to be with courageous students."

Although Roberts has been very private about her personal relationship with Laign, back in December, the "GMA" host spoke highly of her girlfriend in a Facebook post, US Weekly reported.

"I am grateful for my entire family, my long time girlfriend Amber, and friends as we prepare to celebrate a glorious new year together," she wrote.

Additionally, Roberts also released a statement, saying: "I'm delighted to support GLSEN, an incredible organization that is working to end bullying and make schools safer for LGBT students. I'm particularly happy to lift up the leadership of students who fight for respect and dignity for all."

Other than her recent involvement with GSLEN and her stable relationship with Laign, Roberts, who has battled two types of cancer in the past, is also grateful for having the opportunity to work on the hit morning show, "Good Morning America."

In a recent interview with Local Memphis, Roberts, who started her career in broadcasting in 1983, shared nothing but happy memories of what it is like to be on the show.

"You know what a thrill it is to look in the camera and say, 'Good Morning America?' To wake people up and say we want to do whatever we can to inform you first and foremost but then help you have a good day?"

Of course, ABC News, Roberts' home network, has got her back. In a previous interview, the network told US Weekly, "We love Robin and Amber, who we have all known for a long time."
