Ellen Page announced she is gay today in the course of a speech at the inaugural “Time to THRIVE” conference in Las Vegas.
“I’m here today because I am gay,” the Juno and Inception star said at the event, which was organized by the LGBT advocacy group Human Rights Campaign. “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.”
