I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

ACTRESS ELLEN PAGE COMES OUT AS GAY


Academy Award-nominated actress Ellen Page announced Friday at an LGBT youth conference in Las Vegas that she is gay.
“I am tired of hiding,” she said. “I’m tired of lying by omission.
“I’m here today because I am gay,” Page, 26, told the audience to a raucous standing ovation. “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.”
Page cited “football hero Michael Sam” and Laverne Cox from “Orange is the New Black” as two inspirations for her decision to come out publicly.
“Happy Valentine’s Day,” an emotional Page concluded her eight-minute long speech. “I love you.”
