Ellen Page Comes Out As Gay

On Feb. 14, at a Human Rights Campaign conference for LGBT youths, 26-year-old actress Ellen Page publicly announced that she is gay.

The former Oscar nominee gave a moving and emotional speech about her wish to live “an open and authentic life.”

“I’m here today because I am gay,” Page told an audience in Las Vegas, NV at the Time to Thrive conference for LGBT youth. “And because maybe I can make a difference. To help others have an easier and more hopeful time. Regardless, for me, I feel a personal obligation and a social responsibility.”
