Ellen Page did it, you guys: she came out. And to a roomful of people while giving a very stirring speech. She spoke at the Human Rights Campaign “Time To Thrive” conference for LGBTQ youth.
Here’s what she said:
I am here today because I am gay. (Applause, standing ovation.) And because maybe I can make a difference. To help others have a easier and more hopeful time. Regardless for me I feel a personal obligation and a social responsibility. I also do it selfishly, because I’m tired of hiding, and I’m tired of lying by omission. (Applause.)
I recommend watching the entire thing, it’s pretty good.
