Celebrate Pride Month With Ellen DeGeneres's Best LGBT Clips

Ellen DeGeneres

The video of DeGeneres's LGBT moments illustrates the arc of equality over the years. 

Over the years on her talk show, Ellen DeGeneres has used her platform not only to tell her own story but to highlight the lives of all kinds of LGBT people, including celebrities such as Laverne Cox, Sam Smith, and Ellen Page, and so many more, like a trans military couple and twin brothers who came out to their father together.

To celebrate Pride Month, DeGeneres's team put together a montage of some of her show's biggest LGBT moments including a funny opening bit in which she announces, "I'm gay," something she did for the first time publicly 20 years ago on the cover of Time.

The Pride Month clips include Cox (who was Time's first transgender cover person), DeGeneres sharing details of her marriage with Portia de Rossi, and the once anti-LGBT father who became a pro-LGBT activist protesting Roy Moore's Senate bid last November after his gay daughter died by suicide in 1995.

The video ends with the famous clip of DeGeneres thanking President Barack Obama for all of the work he did to move the country toward full equality for LGBT people.
