  • I'm Ellen and I'm gay.

  • [APPLAUSE]

  • >> [LAUGH]

  • 20 years ago,

  • I said that it was a much bigger deal then.

  • You are here on a very special day.

  • Today we're celebrating the 20th anniversary of the coming out episode of

  • my sitcom.

  • My character,

  • Ellen Morgan, came out as a lesbian on national television.

  • And I, Ellen DeGeneres, came out at the same time.

  • And this was before Facebook.

  • So if you wanted to announce something, it was the only way.

  • You had to get a sitcom.

  • >> [LAUGH] >> And

  • that was >>

  • >> It's how we did things.

  • It was the first time a lead character on TV had come out.

  • This was before Will and Grace, and Cayman Mitchell, and Holman and Kathie Lee.

  • >> [LAUGH] >> And

  • it was called the puppy episode because we wanted to keep it a secret until it aired.

  • And because Ellen throws her career away seemed to on the nose.

  • Actually,

  • the real reason we called it the puppy episode was.

  • Cuz when the writers told the executives that they wanted me to come out because my

  • character needed to be in a relationship after four years of not being in

  • a relationship.

  • Some in the studio said well get her a puppy she's not coming out.

  • And so, we call the puppy episode.

  • I can't describe to you how challenging it was to get this episode made.

  • And at the time it was so controversial.

  • Which is why I thought this was important to celebrate the anniversary and

  • to remember what it was like back then and appreciate how far we have come.

  • Take a look.

  • >> Ellen, you're gonna be late for your dinner date with your old college friend,

  • Richard.

  • >> It's like she's been in there forever.

  • >> Ellen, are you coming out or not?

  • >> Yeah, Ellen, quit jerking us around and come out already.

  • Yeah.

  • [MUSIC]

  • Imagine the most difficult and personal decision you've ever had to make in your

  • life becoming the hot topic of debate in newspapers, magazines, and television.

  • >> Television history as we know it [CROSSTALK]

  • >> Lots of rumors in the press.

  • Tell me, what's gonna happen with Ellen Morgen.

  • >> We do find out that the character is Lebanese?

  • Lebanese.

  • >> Has there ever been anyone you felt you clicked with?

  • And what was his name?

  • >> Susan. >>

  • >> After months of speculation and

  • assumingly endless media frenzy.

  • >> The TV sitcom character Ellen is set to announce she's a lesbian.

  • >> The audience could be there in record numbers.

  • >> Over 2,000 people attended a party.

  • >> I think people are interested in this, sitcom history.

  • >> Why was it necessary for you to come out, tell the public?

  • Why was it necessary for the character to do so?

  • >> Because it's okay.

  • Because it is okay.

  • >> [APPLAUSE] >> Why do I have to be so ashamed?

  • I mean why can't I just see the truth?

  • I mean, be who I am.

  • I'm 35 years old, I'm so afraid to tell people.

  • I mean, I just, Susan I'm gay.

  • >> [LAUGH]

  • [MUSIC]

  • >> I'm gay.

  • >> [APPLAUSE]

  • [MUSIC]

  • >> Did you expect it to turn into all of this?

  • >> No, no, I mean, I knew that it would be big, but

  • I had no idea that it would be this big.

  • The announcements have sent off a huge debate.

  • [MUSIC]

  • >> The gay community has an agenda.

  • >> Obnoxious and objectional material.

  • >> It's unfortunate that the sitcom Ellen portrayed their homosexual lifestyle

  • As normal and acknowledges their behavior.

  • >> We've seen the fallout that Ellen DeGeneres has had to face since she

  • decided to be open about her sexuality.

  • >> I am concerned that we are flaunting sex.

  • >> God says it's wrong, it's in God's word.

  • >> I just feel like we're being stuffed with this right now.

  • >> But.

  • >> Down our throats.

  • It's just like.

  • >> Yeah. >> Why?

  • Why? All of a >> Well, because you don't have to fight for anyone to embrace you.

  • And say how wonderful, you have a family and children and.

  • >> You wouldn't know I'm straight.

  • I'm not out on the cover saying, yup, I'm straight.

  • Nobody wants to know.

  • Nobody cares.

  • >> Time has been asking how to get in touch with you.

  • [LAUGH] >> [APPLAUSE]

  • [MUSIC]

  • >> It was hard, I lost everything, and

  • I got to be stripped down of everything and start all over again.

  • And that was a wonderful gift, to be able to start all over again and

  • to realize that I was strong enough to come back.

  • >> [APPLAUSE] >> She is funny, she's quirky, and

  • she's got a brand new TV show.

  • The appropriately titled, Ellen DeGeneres show, is her passion,

  • the thing she eats, sleeps, and breathes.

  • >> And the Emmy goes to Ellen.

  • >> Ellen. >> Ellen.

  • >> Ellen. >>

  • >> The one and only Ellen DeGeneres.

  • >> If you haven't heard,

  • the California supreme court overturned the ban on gay marriage.

  • >> [APPLAUSE] >> So I would like to say right now for

  • the first time, I am announcing I'm getting married.

  • >> [APPLAUSE]

  • [MUSIC]

  • >> It's easy to forget now just how much courage was required for

  • Ellen to come out on the most public of stages almost 20 years ago.

  • Just how important it was.

  • Not just to the LGBT community, but for all of us.

  • To see somebody so

  • full of kindness and light remind us that we have more in common than we realize.

  • Push our country in the direction of justice.

  • [MUSIC]

  • >> Good for you, you're gay.

  • So what are you gonna do now?

  • >> I'm going to Disney Land!

  • >> [LAUGH]

  • >> [APPLAUSE] >> Thank you.

  • Thank you. Thank you so much.

  • It was the hardest thing that I ever had to do in my life.

  • And I would not change one moment of it because

  • it led me to be exactly where I am today.

  • Standing in front of all of you which is a joy.

  • And the fact that all of you and everyone at home is watching me and willing to

  • accept me into your homes everyday when no one thought that would ever happen again.

  • It means the world to me, I thank you, and I celebrate you all with this dance.

I'm Ellen and I'm gay.
