Out celebs Portia de Rossi, Andy Cohen: ‘EW’ 2010, 100 words

By Greg Hernandez

HollywoodNews.com: Portia de Rossi, actress and author: “Personally, 2010 was a very challenging year but a rewarding one too. It will always be the year that my memoir was published, and I finally made peace with my past. I also changed my name to DeGeneres this year, although I don’t know when I’ll use it. I honestly changed it thinking, ‘Oh, that’s nice, I’ll have a Social Security card and passport with DeGeneres on it.’ But it was really important for me to take her last name. I also got to go on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ this year, which was good, but she made me cry.

Dan Savage, author and founder of It Gets Better: “When we started It Gets Better, it was not about celebrities. LGBT kids look up to Ellen DeGeneres and ‘Glee’s’ Chris Colfer, but they are smart and know the odds of growing up to be Ellen are slim. So what’s important isn’t that Ellen made a video – or Ke$ha or the president (the president!) – but the celeb videos are mixed in with thousands of others from ordinary LGBT adults, proving that you don’t have to be Ellen when you grow up to be safe, loved and happy. Not that there’s anything wrong with being Ellen when you grow up!”
