Feb 14th Ellen Page announced she was gay. She hopes to help promote issues in the gay community.
Ellen Page attended Time To THRIVE, a conference promoting issues of the gay community, on Feb. 14. She was actually there to show support and announce that she was gay.
“I’m here today because I am gay,” Ellen said to the Las Vegas conference audience. “And because… maybe I can make a difference.”
She continued, “I am tired of hiding and I am tired of lying by omission. I suffered for years, because I was scared to be out.”
She also talked about Micheal Sam and the bravery it took him to also come out the closet.
She later thanked the Human Rights Campaign who sponsored the event for their support on twitter.
This was very brave for her to do what she did. This will give other the courage to do the same and not be afraid. Congratulations Ellen we support you!!
