Is Ellen dancing less around her gayness?
We've happened upon only two or three episodes of "The Ellen Degeneres Show" this season, yet in virtually every single one we've heard Ms. D refer to the fact that she's a lesbian. Considering that at a common complaint from the LGBT community (fair or not) has been that Ellen has completely shied away from her sexual orientation since taking up her new daytime digs, we've been pleasantly surprised to see these Portia mentions play out on our screens.
Well yesterday we didn't get to see the show, but we were very happy to learn that on it, both Ellen and Neil Patrick "we refuse to call him Doogie" Harris were completely forthright about their same-sex significant others and the non-issue that is their sexual orientations. Huffington Post has a quick clip of Neil talking about his relationship with partner David Burtka:
Also, Queerty has a more complete transcript of the same-sex loving fun, in which Ellen talks about Portia:
‘Doogie’ Does Degeneres [Queerty]
Check those both out.
And Ellen: Keep up the gay work. You have a window into America's living rooms through which your non-controversial, non- society-corrupting reality can truly change uninformed minds.
