As far as LGBT causes are concerned, Ellen DeGeneres long ago cemented her status as one of this generation's most fiercely important civil rights leaders.
But if you thought she was done breaking down barriers, you better think again!!!
The charming comedienne reportedly teamed up with 2 Broke Girls openly gay writer Liz Feldman to create a lesbian-themed multi-camera comedy for NBC!!!!
Though she's now best known for her AH-Mazing hosting work on daytime TV, Ellen memorably starred in a popular ABC sitcom of her very own back in the mid '90s! She even outted herself on it!!
We can't wait to see her break down even more barriers with her new show!!
