Juno actress Ellen Page made this year’s Valentine’s Day one to remember, bravely—and beautifully—coming out of the closet.

During the Human Rights Campaign’s “Time To Thrive” conference, Page said some extremely powerful words about the LGBT movement, all leading up to her declaration, “I am gay.” Cheers and a standing ovation immediately followed, which moved Page to tears.

“Maybe I can make a difference, to help others have an easier and more hopeful time,” Page continued. “Regardless, for me, I feel a personal obligation…I am tired of lying by omission.”

Touching on bullying, Page decreed, “we deserve to experience love fully, equally, without shame, and without compromise.”

Brava, Ellen.
