"ELLEN" show becomes 1st Prime-Time TV show with lead lesbian character - 1987...



Item # 663008

March 1, 1997

LOS ANGELES TIMES, March 1, 1997 (Calendar Section only)

* Ellen DeGeneres' character "comes out" as homosexual
* I1st Prime-Time TV lead role to feature a lesbian character


The front page of this complete Calendar Section has the 4-column banner headline: "'Ellen' Gets ready to Open the Closet Door," followed by considerable text which continues on page 17 where a photo is also included. Quite historic.

It's always nice to have TV/Hollywood related reporting in a local newspaper - the Los Angeles Times perhaps being the best.

This Calendar section is complete in 22 pages and is in very nice condition.

Provenance: Although this issue is labelled as "used," it comes from the Los Angeles Times' own archives, and has never been in distribution.
