They have been maligned and abused for centuries, and it’s taken brave people such as comedienne and talk-show personality Ellen Degeneres to come out and say it’s okay, I’m human. I am who I am.

There are a host of Ellen Degeneres biographies. She has written three books herself. What is important to remember is that she is a functioning, contributing, well respected member of society.
