Protip: This is a really bad question to ask when visiting the National Mall. We have 8 buildings surrounding the Mall, and a total of 19 museums, 9 research centers and the National Zoo. A S.H.I.E.L.D agent should know better!
This time 17 years ago, on April 14, 1997, Ellen DeGeneres unveiled her big secret on what has now become a famous cover of TIME magazine, with the words “Yep, I’m gay.” Now ellen is an inspiration and constant lightness in a world that focuses so much on what dark and mean. Her kindness is infectious as well as her dancing. Without this huge courageous step she took 17 years ago, the world would not be witness to the equality we now have. There is still a way to go, but the lengths we have come are amazing. And for that Ellen Degeneres I thank you!
