Ellen Page is gay

Well, that's interesting.

http://gawker.com/ellen-page-comes-o...ium=socialflow

Actress Ellen Page publicly came out as gay Friday evening, while giving a speech at Time to THRIVE, a national LGBTQ youth conference held in Las Vegas.

"I'm here today because I am gay," Page told the assembled crowd, which responded with a standing ovation and a long chorus of cheers.

"Whoo!" said Page, before continuing:

Quote:

"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.

I also do it selfishly because I'm tired of hiding and I'm 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 that pain."
Page is most famous for becoming pregnant by her awkward classmate Michael Cera, and for invading the dreams of a stranger alongside Leonardo DiCaprio, neither of which happened in real life, because she is an actress.

After her speech, the Human Rights Campaign, which organized the conference, congratulated Page on the front page of its website for "her brave decision to live openly and authentically."

He makes no secret of his homosexuality, he's thanked his partner profusely and eloquently in each of his Emmy wins, but he doesn't hold press conferences or pontificate on sexual politics to any and everyone who will listen.

I didn't know that he was homosexual. That's the guy from Big Bang Theory, right?

No, it's 1%-3%

Whatever it is. The lower 1-3% number further supports my assertion, actually.

See, that's what I have problems with. Jim Parsons is outwardly gay enough in his personality. This isn't like Neil Patrick Harris or anything. And for those types of gay people, there's not all this pressure for people to think you're something that you are not.

In the 70s and 80s if coming out of the closet were as acceptable as it is now, I don't think Paul Lynde or Charles Nelson Reilly would make public statements about their sexuality. Why should they?

Prison Bitch said 1-3% identify as gay but does that account for those that are homosexual but don't identify as such?

NPH frequently plays a poon hound, but he's never hidden his sexuality as far as I know. I mean, that's kinda the joke.

Jim Parsons is gay? I had no idea. But then again I guess I've only seen him once out of character, and that was only for a couple of minutes during a channel-switching binge.
