Ellen Page has come out as a lesbian.

The Juno star made the announcement during a stirring speech she gave on Friday at the LGBT conference “Time to THRIVE,” held in Las Vegas.

Page told the audience, “I’m here today because I am gay,” adding, “maybe I can make a difference to help others have an easier and more hopeful time.”

“Regardless, for me,” she added, “I feel a personal obligation and a social responsibility.”

Page noted that she works in an industry that tells “you how you have to act, how you have to dress,and who you have to be. I have been trying to push back, to be authentic, to follow my heart, but it can be hard.”
