“I love being trans. And I love being ‘queer’. And the more I fully embrace who I am, the more my heart grows and I prosper ”, writes the 33-year-old interpreter
The actress Ellen Page, known for his portrayal of Juno in the eponymous film in 2007 for his involvement in the series of Netflix The Umbrella Academy, has issued a statement declaring transgender and calls from now to call Elliot. “Hello friends, I want to share with you that I am trans, my pronouns are he/they, and my name is Elliot”, Page begins in his writing before continuing with the satisfaction he feels at being able to make his feelings public. “I love being trans. And I love being queer . And the more I hug myself and fully embrace who I am, the more I dream, the more my heart grows and the more I prosper ”.
The now 33-year-old actor, nominated for an Oscar in 2008 for his performance in Juno, appreciates all the support received at this time by people who knew his situation. “I feel overwhelming gratitude for the incredible people who have supported me throughout this journey. Many in the trans community have inspired me infinitely. Thank you for your courage, your generosity, and your unceasing work to make this world a more inclusive and compassionate place. I will offer all the support I can and I will continue to fight for a more loving and egalitarian society, “he adds in his text published on his social networks, where he has changed the name of Ellen’s profile to Elliot Page .
