It’s been 20 years ago since  Ellen DeGeneres has decided to come out publicly.

She came out via being on the cover of Time Magazine.

DeGeneres told the magazine then: ‘I mean I knew that I was going to—that was one of the things when I decided to have my character on the show come out, I knew I was going to have to come out too. But I didn’t want to talk about it until the show was done.’

‘I watched my friend Melissa [Etheridge] come out, and she became “the lesbian rock star.” I never wanted to be “the lesbian actress.” I never wanted to be the spokesperson for the gay community. Ever. I did it for my own truth.’
