Here's Ellen Degeneres discussing the recent JC Penny controversy. [Read about that here, if you're not up to speed.] Say what you will about Ellen and her treacly afternoon talk-show, but she just comes across as a genuine, nice person and a perfect mainstream face for the gay community. Plus she can dance.
Your idiot right-wing Republican aunt and uncle may not like her, but she's a gay yer Grandma can love!
