“I think I’m an actor in the world for the most part, and i think the reason I can be that and be openly homosexual is because of Ellen Degeneres. It was like the spotlight was put on her and … she did it. She’s a pioneer. She busted down the doors and housewives from the Midwest are dancing with her. I mean, it’s an amazing thing — what’s happened with her. The reverberations are just huge for humanity. It’s huge.”

— actress Jane Lynch, in a short film for Makers, which you can watch below.
