Ellen’s Teen Choice Awards acceptance speech is exactly what young LGBT people needed to hear.

Since coming out as lesbian in a 1997 episode of her ABC sitcom “Ellen,” she’s been a very public LGBT figure. At the time, coming out was a huge deal, and she faced somemajor backlash over it. While things can still be tough for LGBT adults, it’s especially hard to be an LGBT teen struggling to come to terms with themselves.
