    Actress Ellen Page: "I am gay"


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Actress Ellen Page came out that she is gay at the Time to Thrive conference on February 14. Chris Morrow, who is covering the conference, got reactions from people who are attending the event. Time to Thrive is the first national conference in Las Vegas, Nevada, promoting safety, inclusion and well-being for LGBTQ youth and is put together Human Rights Campaign.
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

    Ellen Page spoke honestly for the first time in front of several hundred LGBT educators. She brought tears to the audience as well as a sense of pride. Check out my video with audience members who listened and hear their reactions.


    "I’m here today because I am gay...

    I am tired of hiding and I am 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 today, with all of you, on the other side of all that pain.", Ellen Page
