    I just watched this clip of Ellen Page speaking

    at a conference for LGBT. What an incredible speaker. She has such passion and courage. She just announced to the world that she is gay. Maybe her words will give you the courage to face your problems, and mine too. http://variety.com/2014/film/news/ellen-page-announces...
