Elliot Page is feeling the love from fans and friends alike. On Tuesday, Dec. 1, the actor, formerly known as Ellen Page, shared on social media that he is transgender.
"Hi friends, I want to share with you that I am trans, my pronouns are he/they, and my name is Elliot," he wrote in a lengthy statement. "I feel lucky to be writing this. To be here. To have arrived at this place in my life." "I love that I am trans," Elliot continued. "And I love that I am queer. And the more I hold myself close and fully embrace who I am, the more I dream, the more my heart grows and the more I thrive. To all trans people 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."
