Ellen Page Comes Out as Gay at Human Rights Campaign Event

Ellen Page

After years of speculation about her sexuality, Ellen Page has come out as a lesbian today.

Speaking at a Human Rights Campaign event, the 26-year-old actress began her speech (seen after the jump!) congratulating the organization - which aims to fight for LGBTQ equality - and then as she increasingly came to tears, she revealed, "I’m here today because I am gay, and because maybe I can make a difference."

The Juno actress continued, “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.”

Page will next be seen in this year's X-Men: Days of Future Past, reprising her role as Kitty Pryde.
