Ellen DeGeneres on Coming Out, Gay and Lesbian Rights Issues - Speech (1997)

In 2007, Forbes estimated DeGeneres’s net worth at US million.

She is a fan of the National Football League, and has shown particular support for the New Orleans Saints and the Green Bay Packers. In 2011, she attended a Saints practice dressed as Packers Hall of Famer Don Hutson.

In 1997, DeGeneres came out as a lesbian. The bold disclosure of her sexual orientation sparked clamorous interest by American tabloids.[38] The contentiousness of the media coverage stunted DeGeneres’ professional career and left her “mired in depression”.[38] That same year, she began a romantic relationship with bisexual actress Anne Heche;[39] they broke up in August 2000.[39] In her book Love, Ellen, DeGeneres’s mother Betty DeGeneres describes being initially shocked when her daughter came out as a lesbian, but has become one of her strongest supporters, an active member of Parents & Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) and spokesperson for the Human Rights Campaign’s Coming Out Project.

From 2001 to 2004, DeGeneres maintained a close affair with actress/director/photographer Alexandra Hedison.[40] The couple appeared on the cover of The Advocate after their separation had already been announced to the media.[41]

Since 2004, DeGeneres has had a relationship with Portia de Rossi. After the overturn of the same-sex marriage ban in California, DeGeneres announced on a May 2008 show that she and de Rossi were engaged,[42][43] and gave de Rossi a three-carat pink diamond ring.[44] They were married on August 16, 2008, at their home, with nineteen guests including their mothers.[44] The passage of Proposition 8 cast doubt on the legal status of their marriage, but a subsequent California Supreme Court judgment validated it because it occurred before November 4, 2008.[45][46]

DeGeneres and de Rossi live in Beverly Hills, with three dogs and four cats,[47] and both are vegan.[48]

On August 6, 2010, de Rossi filed a petition to legally change her name to Portia Lee James DeGeneres[49] The petition was granted on September 23, 2010.[50]

In November 2011, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton named her a Special Envoy for Global AIDS Awareness.

  2. Jesusprincess says:

    Its wrong it dont look right but im not saying that all homosexualss go to
    hell either,i come across gay christian they just interpret the bible
    different from us,however i do think the bible do say that u should not be
    gay.i think a woman can have deep feelings for a woman but love dont have
    to be about sex,love in its purest form is spiritual love,making love of
    the souls not of the body,only man woman should make love both soul and
    body,just wat i think.

  3. john fidels revolution says:

    The benefits is what they want. Sharing the money without being taxed is
    what marriage is. If youre not married you get in trouble if you give money
    to anyone without it being taxed. If they want the benefits, yes I agree
    with it. Marriage is about growing children of your own bloodline. That I
    dont agree with cause you can never bare children together. But they can
    adopt which is what is happening.

    The Rapture. Luke 17:34-37

    I tell you, in that night there will be two in one bed. One will be taken
    and the other left. There will be two women grinding together. One will be
    taken and the other left.” And they said to him, “Where, Lord?” He said to
    them, “Where the corpse is, there the vultures will gather.”

    For all you sleeze bag scummy piece of shit guys saying “it’s okay if it’s
    two hot lesbians” I hope you enjoy that fact that you’re gonna burn in hell
    for preaching hate 😉 I hope that you all get brutally fucked in the ass.
    It’s soooo rude to say that. Being a lesbian I obviously agree with the
    fact that gay marriage should be legal but I absolutely HATE hearing those
    comments. Who fucking cares if two guys are shoving it in each other’s
    asses. What you’re saying is disrespectful. God I hate you guys who say
    that. If you agree with lesbians then you are up for gays too. If you don’t
    like gays then you don’t like both. It’s as simple as that. Because with
    one comes both. Have a nice life you pieces of human excrement ;))

    First of all I’m a boss.
    I’d just like to get that across.
    I hate faggots.
    What’s good?
    Faggots gettin’ AIDS in my neighborhood.
    I whistled for a cab and when it came near,
    The license plate said “gay” and there was a fag in the mirror.
    Gays make me sick.
    I’m talking knees weak.
    Arms spaghetti.
    There jizz on that fag already.
    Last night I woke up, it’s springin’, gays outside swingin’.
    I’m supposed to be straight and never lose my composure,
    But I hold the weight of all the fags on my shoulders.
    And the Jews are taking over.
    So I wake up in the morning,
    Feeling like P. Diddy.
    Put my glasses on and burn some Jews in my chimney.
    Before I leave, brush my teeth with Afgan babies,
    ‘Cause when I leave for the night, I know it’s alright cause they all have
    I’m talkin’ Jews in my ovens, ovens.
    Fags goin’ to hell, hell
    Black Water munchin’ on their bones, bones.
    Don’t stop make it pop.
    DJ blow those fags up.
    I know sometimes things make not make sense to you right now,
    But hey. What did daddy ever do to you?
    Straighten up little soldier.
    Stiffen up that upper lip.
    What you cryin’ ’bout?
    It’s just balls deep.
    I pulled up to the house about 11 or 12,
    And yelled at a fag “Yo fag go to hell”
    I looked at my kingdom,
    It was finally clear.
    Sit on my throne,
    No fags anywhere here.

    P.S. Fuck Niggers and fuck Indians

    Amber Snowdon: So everyone must accept immorality or be targeted for being
    Being gay is NOT normal and this is the reason why below……..
    Gay men have more feminine hormones and a female brain which is why they
    are attracted to the same gender, whereas gay women have more male hormones
    and a more male brain and the reason they are attracted to the same gender.
    This is a scientific fact that the brains of gay people are different to
    those who are straight, so it would appear that being gay is not normal
    when there is an abnormality within the brains of gay people.
    There is an abnormality with the hormones of gay people and something along
    the way in evolution has caused this abnormality.
    Go and educated yourselves instead of accepting sin and immorality you
    disgusting perverts.

  13. George Moncayo says:

    a book called the stones cry out by Randall Price shows a lot of
    archaeology that supports the Bible.

  14. George Moncayo says:

    Jesus said “So it will be at the end of the age,the angels will come forth
    and take out the wicked from among the righteous, and will throw them into
    the furnace of fire, in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of
    teeth.”Matthew 13:49-50. Jesus also said “You are my friends if you do what
    I command you.” John 15:14. Jesus taught that the only way to be saved is
    to choose him as your Lord and Master, repent and believe that he died for
    the sins of his people on the cross see John 14:6.

  15. George Moncayo says:

    God says that homosexuality is an abomination in Leviticus 18:22 Jesus said
    that marriage is between one man and one woman in Matthew 19:4-6 in Genesis
    19 God roasted to death a bunch of homosexuals and Romans 1 speaks against
    it as well.

  16. wolverin648 says:

    Good for you, have fun, have a good life, i wish the best for you.

  17. KingJeffo says:

    But being homosexual is an option that mean’s you mentally want to be homo

  18. Aesthetically Challenged Studios says:

    • a trick played on someone for fun. No offense. I don’t think his joke was
    funny… but for him, maybe it was fun? I got that from the dictionary.
    Don’t mean to be a dick or anything, but just wanted to point that out.

  19. Amber Snowdon says:

    No matter what sexuality you are, you should be able to have the right to
    get married. At the end of the day you cannot help who you fall in love
    with. Same sex or not. This is just my opinion.

  20. Red Snow says:

    Same thing. Just different words.

  21. GumballGiggity says:

    Whatever, let them get married, It doesn’t affect my life.

  22. Red Snow says:

    Wow you ARE pathetic. I am not gay, but I have gay friends, is that a
    problem for you? If it is then you can sod off. You are clearly and
    immature kid, based on the fact that you have to personally insult me just
    to prove a point which is totally and completly wrong. They can show public
    affection if they want. It’s freedom of speech and the freedom to express
    yourself. If they stop showing public affection than everyone has to stop.
    Because if they live in the USA it is there right. Now sod off

    I love ellen she so so amazing

  32. vaafuti Tauinaola says:

    why God created the man and the woman at the first place?

  33. stiras1 says:

    She was soo brave to come out. But ya know… I feel she has changed A LOT
    since then. In old videos she seems so shy and scared still. When I see her
    now… I see this SUPER confident woman. I mean… they all say “it gets
    better”, and it really does. Ellen has this wonderful life, she is out and
    proud, she is the queen of gays, and everyone loves her. 😀 I just wish
    that in future people can come out from an early age without fear, and live
    happy without hiding who they are.

  34. VlinderLotje says:
