“Do we have to worry about who’s Gay and Straight, can’t we just love everybody and judge them by the car they drive?” ~ Ellen Degeneres
In 1997, Ellen DeGeneres became an unintentional activist when she announced she was gay.
The decision, Ellen admits in this new clip for Oprah’s Master Class series, was one she never thought she’d make.
“I certainly didn’t ever that I was going to come out,” she says. “Period. And I didn’t think I’d be coming out on a show, ever.”
