Last night, Juno star Ellen Page came out as lesbian at Time to Thrive, a conference sponsored by the Human Rights Campaign centered on helping LGBT youth. Her speech, which is moving from start to finish, brings to light her own issues as a young lesbian in Hollywood. “I am tired of hiding and I am tired of lying by omission,” she says emotionally.  Hopefully, this will bring her a greater sense of peace and bring hope and encouragement to young LGBT men and women who are living in fear. What? I’m not crying! YOU’RE crying!

You can watch her whole speech below.  Now if you’ll excuse me, there’s something in my eye.
