TIME Magazine, Ellen DeGeneres (1997)

Ellen DeGeneres is now considered one of the most popular talk show hosts on the air, but she had a difficult time after appearing on the cover of TIME Magainze’s April 1997 issue, where she announced to the world that she was gay. Some media outlets in conservative areas of the U.S. pulled her sitcom, but the cover cemented DeGeneres as a leading activist for LGBT rights, as well as a household celebrity name.
