Happy Anniversary, Ellen Page

Happy Anniversary, Ellen Page February 17, 2015

Valentine’s Day was the one-year anniversary of actress Ellen Page coming out at a Human Rights Campaign conference. The short talk she gave was incredibly moving, so much so that I wish every person who opposes equal rights for the LGBT community would watch it. If they cannot see the humanity, the vulnerability, the authenticity of it, and if that does not move them to embrace their common humanity with her and all gay people, then I’m afraid they are truly hopeless. I can only assume that they are incapable of genuine empathy and understanding.
