Sweet, talented and beautiful Ellen Page agreed to do a keynote speech for professionals who serve and support the LGBT community. And then she gave them the gift of gratitude and fulfillment. What a girl, what a speech.
I hope I live long enough that "I'm gay" isn't the catalyst for a standing ovation any more than "I'm alive." Today, that is not the case, which makes this moment spectacularly poignant and important. You go, girl.
And from a corner of the world not often noted for its love of diversity...(which world, Texas or Sports? You pick) There is this ventilating moment.
You probably have seen these, but just in case you have been busy or Olympically distracted...my Valentine to you.
Love. We should never judge the trajectory. It is always a gift in the world.
