An Oscar nominated Canadian actress has announced that’s she’s lesbian.
Halifax native Ellen Page was speaking last night to the Time to Thrive conference in Las Vegas. It’s an L-G-B-T event for youths, and is sponsored by the Human Rights Campaign, a gay advocacy group.
The 26 year old Page says because she never came out for years, her relationships and mental health suffered, and says she came out in the hope that she could help others.
Page was nominated for an Academy Award for her performance as a teenage mother in the 2007 film “Juno”.
