Ellen DeGeneres (Kobo eBook)
Comedian, host, and executive producer Ellen DeGeneres, with her Emmy-award-winning show and whip-smart wit, is a household name. But many may be unaware that Ellen's life has not always been full of laughs. This book introduces readers to her background--her personal and professional setbacks and triumphs, including her struggle with her sexual identity--a history that has honed her work as an outspoken activist for the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Americans. In addition, the book includes links to organizations and support groups for those looking for help or to get involved as a GLBT activist.
