Wanda Sykes Talks To 'Ellen' About Her New LGBTQ Docuseries 'Visible'!

Wanda Sykes makes an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing Thursday (January 23), and discusses her upcoming AppleTV+ docuseries Visible: Out on Television!

“It’s amazing that these people shared their stories with us, especially you,” the 55-year-old comedian, who also serves as an executive producer on the series, says, referring to Ellen herself.

“It’s documenting the history of LGBTQ community on television. These stories are amazing,” Wanda continues. “What I love about it is that it shows not just our history but it just shows that how important being seen on television is and how it actually effects change and moves the needle. I hope it shows people that it’s important to let marginalized people tell their stories. The story doesn’t have to be about being gay, there’s more to us than that.”

Wanda also tells Ellen what her 10-year-old twins call her and what she threatened to take away from them when they asked her not to talk about them in public anymore.
