Ellen_tulane

Ellen DeGeneres gave the commencement speech at Tulane University over the weekend in which she talks about her girlfriend who was killed in a car accident when she was 19, her stand-up comedy path, coming out as a lesbian, and living one's life with integrity.

Amazing speech!

Watch it, AFTER THE JUMP...

  6. if you can't win people over with rhetoric, win them over with humor and humanity. there are few that cannot be purchased with a laugh and an embrace. you go, ellen.

  7. What I like about Ellen is she celebrates being a classy person and a classy gay woman. Other *gay* comics who shall remain nameless could learn something from her.

  8. Well worth the 9 minutes 30 seconds. Fantastic.

    I appreciate Flyboy's comment: "What I like about Ellen is she celebrates being a classy person and a classy gay woman."

    Ellen just has excellent values.

    I appreciate a lot of Wanda Sykes' humor, but watch Wanda on Ellen's show with the former making a joke about the Special Olympics and the latter not smiling. It says a lot.
