To pay a final tribute to the president who helped make her marriage to now-wife Portia de Rossi legal, Ellen DeGeneres dedicated her show to Obama this week with a look back at the time she spent with him and first lady Michelle Obama over the past eight years.

She also enlisted several celebrity friends to help pay tribute too.

Wife Portia, Neil Patrick Harris, Laverne Cox, Jonathan Groff and Evan Rachel Wood are just a few of the LGBTQ stars to thank the former president for his administration’s acknowledgement of the queer community .

You presided over a period of time that turned out to be, in many ways, one of the most positive periods of time ever in the lives of gay Americans,”

Wood, who is bisexual, echoed those sentiments, thanking Obama for.

… changing the way that people thought about us, and honestly, the way I thought about myself.”
