Ellen & Ellen

Isn’t this a wonderful thing? Two immensely popular celebrities talking about being gay on television together. Talking about the power and personal freedom of coming out. Sharing admiration. Just generally being amazing. This, my friends, is progress. And, damn, if progress doesn’t look great in blazer.

p.s. The episode airs May 27. So stay tuned, even more awesome will probably happen.

You Tube still banned in Turkey , but could watch it on internet site of The Ellen Show. What a joy to watch. Think of us when you watch You Tube and never take your freedom for granted.

Blonde Ellen and brunette Ellen, like a yin yang of gayness

Aaaaannn I'm in tears. So happy for them. And her shoutout to Ellen was so spot-on and thoughtful.

LOL just realized how incoherent my comment was... I blame the emotions!

To be more clear: I'm happy for them in terms of being "free," and more comfortable in their own skin, having shed their feelings of shame. And the shoutout from Little Ellen to Big Ellen was wonderful.s

Beautiful. Yet I cant help but be angry that we have to endure the plight of "Coming Out" in the first place. People n kids killing themselves because society has placed such a stigma on us. Makes me sad... Im thankful EVERY DAY that my friends and family didnt care one way or the other. Love someone today. Even if you dont like them. Maybe they just need a hug.
