Coming out comes with a very negative stigma across the country. Hell, the stigma carries across the world. However, more and more actors and actresses, along with other well-known individuals, are coming out and letting the world know that they are no longer afraid of being who they are.
One such actress is Ellen Page. On February 14 of this year, she decided that she wasn’t going to sit back and feel “guilty” about hiding her sexuality. Instead, she came out and told the world. Page attributes her coming out and courage to Ellen DeGeneres’ coming out years prior “when it was much harder”. In an interview with DeGeneres, Page explains her feelings, emotions and the benefits of being completely outted and happy.
The interview is set to air on May 27, and you’ll get to see all of Page’s heartfelt comments and smiles. The fact is, the girl’s got spunk for coming out and owning it. She’s even been ranked as one of the top power gay celebrities, coming in at number 29. A lot of folks will probably be a little more than judgmental when this hits the air, but the bottom line still stands: Page is happy with her life and willing to show the world that she no longer gives a damn and will not feel ashamed of “hiding” any longer.
