We loved Ellen Page as the rebellious pregnant teen in Juno. We loved her in X Men: The Last Stand. We love her even more now that she has declared her sexual orientation–on Valentine’s Day no less–to a standing ovation at the Human Right Campaign’s “Time To Thrive” conference for LGBT youth in Las Vegas.
“I’m here today because I am gay,” Page, 26, declared in her speech. ”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.”
