Page came out in 2014 at the Human Rights Campaign’s Time to Thrive conference benefiting LGBT youth.

In a moving speech, she said: “I am tired of hiding and I am tired of lying by omission.

“I suffered for years because I was scared to be out. My spirit suffered, my mental health suffered and my relationships suffered.

“And I’m standing here today, with all of you, on the other side of all that pain.”
