Adorable actress Ellen Page announced the other day at an LGBT conference that she is gayer than a unicorn climbing up a rainbow with a dick in its mouth, spouting a really awe and aw inspiring speech about how she was tired of lying to herself, her friends and the public. Page said she felt “a personal obligation and a social responsibility” to tell the truth.
“I am tired of hiding and I am tired of lying by omission,” she said. “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 today, with all of you, on the other side of all that pain. 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 to receive as a human being. And we deserve to experience love fully, equally, without shame and without compromise.”
Overly hopeful lesbians everywhere rejoiced, calling it the “best Valentine’s news ever,” a few men weeped, Autostraddle made her a celebratory coming out playlist and former boyfriend Alexander Skarsgard continued… being tall? I dunno, everyone is gay for Ellen.
