After Ellen: Hey, that sounds like a good name for a website

by Jeremy Hooper

 2007 2007Images Ellen TimecoverThroughout the month of April, the folks over at GLAAD are celebrating the 10th anniversary of the historic coming out of both Ellen Degeneres and her television alter ego, Ellen Morgan.

Or as we like to refer to it: Ten years since America learned how to pronounce the word "Heche."

Also in commemoration of the annivhersary, the Oxygen network will air an "Ellen" marathon on April 30 (8 a.m. – 2 p.m. ET/PT), which is ten years to the day since the two-part coming out episode originally aired. Though true to historical form, we hear the network will cancel the program the next day under the pretension that its "no longer funny."

Your thoughts

Ah, I remember exactly where I was when Ellen came out--I was at the Franciscan house in Berkeley watching it. I was surrounded about about ten gay priests and priests-to-be. I wonder how many of them survived the recent purge in the Catholic Church?
