The Young feminist Wire salutes actress Ellen Page's speech during the Human Rights Campaign conference.

ellenpageActress Ellen Page made a beautiful speech during the Time to Thrive Human Rights Campaign conference. The Human Rights Campaign works for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender equal rights. Here are two of our favorite quotes from her speech:
“I am young, yes, but what I have learned is that love, the beauty of it, the joy of it and yes, even the pain of it, is the most incredible gift to give and to receive as a human being. And we deserve to experience love fully, equally, without shame and without compromise.”

“There are pervasive stereotypes about masculinity and femininity that define how we are all suppose to act, dress and speak and they serve no one. Anyone who defies these so-called norms becomes worthy of comment and scrutiny and the LGBT community knows this all too well.”
