“We forget that there was a time when gay people couldn’t get married. Ellen and Anne were pioneers. They were one of the first out lesbian couples, changing people’s lives by just being their honest selves. Their relationship was deemed groundbreaking for LGBTQ people around the world,” adds a pal. “The outpouring of emotion took Ellen by surprise. At first, she didn’t want to comment, but then it quickly became clear that she had to. Ellen understands this moment. She is not tone-deaf to what is going on.”
