Gay Twitter has embraced pop sensation Hayley Kiyoko as their one true savior, Lesbian Jesus. But if we’re going to start giving out titles to gay celebrities, who else deserves to be celebrated as a gay icon? Samira Wiley has now answered that question.
The Handmaid’s Tale actress made her first appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday (April 17), greeting the host with all of the excitement you would expect. But as DeGeneres started to thank her for coming, Wiley told the host that they’d met before.
“I met you really briefly one time,” she recounted, her voice quivering. “I know you don’t remember, because you’re Ellen, but it meant a lot to me because you’re lord of the lesbians.”
