Ellen Page Comes Out as Gay: See Her Speech

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Ellen Page has become the latest celebrity to publicly announce herself as a homosexual.

The actress came out personal speech delivered at Time to THRIVE, a conference to promote the welfare of LGBT youth held in Las Vegas.

"I'm here today because I am gay," Page told the crowd.  "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."

The Oscar nominee then went into detail about her struggles to accept this part of herself as someone working in the entertainment industry.

"It's weird because here I am, an actress, representing - at least in some sense - an industry that places crushing standards on all of us," Page said.

"Not just young people, but everyone. Standards of beauty. Of a good life. Of success. Standards that, I hate to admit, have affected me."

Page concluded by thanking those in the organization for their "love and support" and adding:

"You have ideas planted in your head, thoughts you never had before, that tell you how you have to act, how you have to dress and who you have to be. I have been trying to push back, to be authentic, to follow my heart, but it can be hard."

Earlier this week, NFL hopeful Michael Sam came out as gay, while M.K. Nobilette became the first openly gay American Idol contestant.

Every so often you make a valid point but for the most part you come across not as a man imbued with the holy spirit but as a redneck who once had a hallucination, playing to a gallery of like-minded misanthropic macho blowhards. It's your gig but it's unlikely you'll ever win a single new convert with that approach.

Sex isn't good for children..IT DESTROYS MOST OF THEM. Homosexuality in men has been likened to being in prison, or addicted to heroin...COMPLETE AND TOTAL OBSESSION. ENLIGHTENMENT(William House), is the ONLY way back. I don't buy the GOING STRAIGHT THING...Abstention or MONOGOMY seem to be the only 2 remedies.. Anonymous sex in public places are part of the LIFESTYLE for gay men...Sveral rest areas in Marxachusetts had to be closed because of this...THANKS, GUYS.. Kevin Bishop is an admitted pedophile and spokesperson for the North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA). In an interview with a South Africa paper, Bishop hypothesized, “Scratch the average homosexual and you will find a pedophile.”

Hating the PETA A§HOLES And CHICKENS LITTLE does not make me AN HATER OF NATURE OR ANIMALS, YOU STUPID BABY... NOBODY KILLS MORE ANIMALS THAN PETA, LOOK IT UP..Gaydolph was an ANIMAL PERSON AND A VEGETRIAN AND A SADISTIC HOMOSEXUAL AND A BELIEVER IN BLACK, NOT WHITE MAGIC..

Hate-by-numbers. Why the jihad on animals or the environment? It defies reason. Your rants are those of a mental and emotional cripple. Even Jesus would have given up on you. I'm done here.

@ A_Lazarus

I agree with 90% of this. But why does that mean you have to hate vegans. "warmists", "animal rights dickheads", strong women, hindus, buddhists, muslims (your utopia sounds a lot like Saudi Arabia to me!) and all the other bogeymen of the simpleton hard-Right? Can't you think for yourself and be selective about who truly merits contempt or do you HAVE to follow the small-minded mean-spirited redneck pack to the letter? What does any of that have to do with godliness?

And, I don't HATE Ellen Page. But, if she turns into a Britney, an Olsen, Lindsey Lohan or Miley Cyrus, I don't believe she'll see 40. Sex addiction, straight or gay, alcoholism and coke addiction are a lethal cocktail. It's called TOUGH LOVE. I don't ENVY OR ADMIRE THE POOR KID..

Godless people don't have consciences..Pacifists have been cowed by them...SOME, A-Gnostics are OK, if they aren't online, sneering at believers... And there are SOME DECENT MUSLIMS, who don't believe in the Caliphate and Jihad, but, they AREN'T TRUE TO THEIR FAITH, BECAUSE THEY DON'T WISH TO KILL EVERYBODY, THAT DOESN'T CONVERT. Proverbs 3:34
New International Version (NIV)
34 He mocks proud mockers but shows favor to the humble and oppressed Matthew 23:12
New International Version (NIV)
12 For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.

Rubbish. Your scoffing is no different to anyone else's scoffing. There are thousands of ways to shine light in darkness. Your weapon of choice is scoffing so that's what you in turn reap.

And how do you get by financially? Totally self-funded, I hope... although that's hard to believe for someone so obviously from the 'unemployable head-case' demographic.

Why do all your pages on the other sites you poison with your presence look like they've been put together by a severely autistic child? And you have the gall to call OTHER PEOPLE 'adult children'? Real mature adults spend their time doing that?? Jesus_F_Christ!
