Tonight actress Ellen Page came out as lesbian from the stage of HRC’s inaugural Time to THRIVE Conference. HRC congratulates Page on her brave decision to live openly and authentically.
Perhaps best known for her roles in movies like Juno,Inception and X-Men, Page’s indomitable spirit sets a powerful example for LGBT and allied youth around the world.
Coming out -- whether it is as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or allied -- is a deeply personal and arduous journey for every individual. Send your congratulations to Ellen Page.
