Ellen Page Is Now Elliot Page: “I Wanted To Share With You That I Am Trans”

Umbrella Academy‘ star Page came out as a transgender male with a statement he shared through his verified social media accounts. The actor, who declared publicly he is gay during the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s ‘Time to Thrive Conference’ in 2014, delivered the news by beginning as follows:

“Hi friends, I want to share with you that I am trans, my pronouns are he/they and my name is Elliot.”

In his statement with the revelation, the Canadian actor expressed he is so glad to have arrived at that place in his life and feeling profoundly happy even though he is still scared too much because his job – acting – is really fragile. He added:

“I’m scared of the invasiveness, the hate, the ‘jokes’ and of violence.”

Then the ‘Juno’ star continued saying:

“I can’t begin to express how remarkable it feels to finally love who I am enough to pursue my authentic self. I’ve been endlessly inspired by so many in the trans community.”

After thanking the LGBTQ+ community and its members who inspired him to be the person he is, Page stated that he is not “trying to dampen a moment that is joyous and one that he celebrates” but also he desires to point out the full picture. And then addressed the fatal violence against transgender people by giving a few statistics regarding the murders.

Elliot Page concluded his statement by stating that he loves that he is trans and supports his entire trans fellows who “deal with harassment, self-loathing, abuse, and the threat of violence every day.”

“I see you, I love you and I will do everything I can to change this world for the better.”

Following Page’s emotional statement, which does not include any detail about his transitioning process, a great number of industry friends jumped into the comment section to congratulate him for his courage.
