My Weekend Crush


I’m shamelessly stealing this idea from Dorothy Surrenders, whose weekend crush this special Pride weekend is: Maria Bello. Yummy, mhm... can't ... form ... sentences. Hmh. I'm in a happy place right now. Seriously, I think Maria should have been on my top ten list!

When I saw this video of Ellen and Portia in Italy, I had an urge to hop onto a train and go down to Italy to catch a glimpse of them IRL. However, I'm not a paparazzi and therefore would not be able to find out where they are so I fought the urge and remained where I am. I love Ellen so much, she really is my hero. When Ellen came out in 1997, I was 9 years old and had no idea who she is. But, as I came out and tried to live my life as a lesbian, she was one of the people I "turned" to for advice. And she gave great advice. Not only through her show "Ellen", but also through living a proud and full live and entertaining me and millions of people with her great sense of humor. Personally, I think Ellen came out for herself. I know what it's like to hide a part of yourself and I feel that she must have probably felt like she was dying inside a little by not being honest. Ellen is a great role model and she definitely fought hard for our community, dealing with not finding work for three whole years. I can't even imagine what that must have been like for her. Ellen seems very smart, nice, genuine and a great soul and she really is my hero, a person I can look up to and strive to be like. There's so much I could say about Ellen, but no matter how many words I use, no words will really express how I feel about her.


This summer, Ellen will marry Portia, "her right piece". I wish them both all the luck in the world and when I see videos and pictures of them together, I fell like they already have that!

Sorry that this was late, I haven't really felt like writing lately. I promise to post more next week!

I completely agree with you. Ellen DeGeneres is an awesome woman, no matter whether she came out for herself or not. She has done so much for us and the community and I wish her and Portia the best of luck.
Also, the photo is so cute; it made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. ^_^

Hope you had a nice weekend!
