"I want you to hold my hand while we grocery shop. I want you to play with my hair while we watch our favorite tv shows. I want you to kiss me in the middle of my sentence because you wanted to taste my words. I want you to rub my back as we fall asleep. I want you to play my favorite song when I look sad. I want you to do these things without having to think about them. Do them because you love me."
This time 17 years ago, on April 14, 1997, Ellen DeGeneres unveiled her big secret on what has now become a famous cover of TIME magazine, with the words “Yep, I’m gay.”
Now ellen is an inspiration and constant lightness in a world that focuses so much on what dark and mean. Her kindness is infectious as well as her dancing.
Without this huge courageous step she took 17 years ago, the world would not be witness to the equality we now have. There is still a way to go, but the lengths we have come are amazing. And for that Ellen Degeneres I thank you!
