Ellen Page komt uit de kast

Ellen Page

Warner Bros.

Actrice Ellen Page, bekend van Inception, Juno en X-men heeft zich vorige vrijdag publiekelijke ge-out als lesbisch. In een emotionele openingsspeech op de Time to Thrive Confernece van de Human Rights Campaign verklaarde ze dat ze genoeg heeft van zichzelf te verstoppen. Het publiek gaf haar een staande ovatie voor haar moedige bekentenis.

“I am here today because I am gay. 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.  I also do it selfishly because I’m tired of hiding. And I’m tired of lying by omission. I suffered for years because I was scared to be out. My spirit suffered.  My mental health suffered and my relationships suffered and I’m standing here with all of you on the other side of this pain. And I am young, yes, but what I have learned is that love, the beauty of it, the joy of it and, yes, even the pain of it is the most incredible gift to give and receive as a human being.”
