Brandi Carlile lent her voice to the push for marriage equality in Washington state in 2012 and was able to make it legal with love Catherine Shepherd the same year. “It feels tremendous to see that in my lifetime,” she said. “If you had told me that when I was a teenager and struggling, I wouldn’t have believed it.”
Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi
