Actress Ellen Page: "I am gay"
- 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
