Page, known for her work in “Juno,” delivered a speak at the “Time to Thrive” conference in Las Vegas.

“I’m here today because I am gay,” Page said. Page had to pause her speech due to a standing ovation from the audience. “And because maybe I can make a difference to help others have an easier and more hopeful time.”

Page, 26, thanked the members of the audience who work with LGBTQ teens and those who counsel the teens too. She said they inspired her to come out.
