Best Halifamous Person

Gold Winner Ellen Page

Silver Winner Joel Plaskett


Bronze Winner Fat Apollo


Sure, she starred in one of the summer’s superhero juggernaut blockbusters. But what really made our love for Ellen Page shine brighter this year was her courageous coming-out speech back in February. “I’m here today because I am gay,” Page told the attendees at a conference for LGBT youth, saying she hoped her announcement might make a difference for others. “I am tired of hiding and I am tired of lying by omission.” As far as an ambassador to the world goes, Halifax could do a lot worse than the talent, thoughtfulness and bravery of our very own Ellen.
