“I wanted to do it and not make it seem about myself. And I wanted to align particularly with something LGBT-youth-oriented,” Page said of her coming out speech at Time to THRIVE. “For me, it was a great opportunity to be honest, to share certain elements of the pain that I went through. Hopefully, that can connect with someone else. The reality is, there are very few young people out as actors, so I was hoping to speak to a lot of the issues so it wouldn’t just seem like, ‘Hey, look, I’m gay.’”
