Famous LGBTQ Celebrity Couples That Will Convince You True Love Exists

Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi

One of the hardest things about being a part of the LGBT community, especially if you’re a celebrity, is coming out in public. Portia de Rossi already built a career in the TV and film industry before admitting she’s gay. In an interview, Portia shared how she struggled with her sexuality. She was hesitant to come out at first because she didn’t want to limit her roles as an actress. She thought this would end her career and lead her into bankruptcy.

However, her perspective on life changed when she met Ellen DeGeneres. It started with a simple hello. It would eventually take a couple of months for Portia to confess her feelings to Ellen. In her memoir, Unbearable Lightness: A Story of Loss and Gain, she wrote about how Ellen taught her acceptance, courage, and wisdom. Now, the two are happily married and enjoying their lives together. Even without kids, they feel content with each other’s company.
