After recently announcing that he is trans and his pronouns are he/they, actor Elliot Page has experienced immense love and support from his fans as well as the the transgender community. Earlier this month, The Umbrella Academy star Elliot Page publicly came out as transgender and non-binary.Opening up so blatantly to express one’s true gender identity needs a lot of courage and he has excelled in it!
The beginning of December 2020 offered a new lease of life for Elliot Page.
“Hi friends, I want to share with you that I am trans, my pronouns are he/they and my name is Elliot,” Page said. “I feel lucky to be writing this. To be here. To have arrived at this place in my life.”-posted the actor revealing his transgender identity.
Right after Page’s announcement, the actor has received an outpouring of support from fans, friends and fellow actors. Marvel‘s Mark Ruffalo, Kat Dennings, Miley Cyrus, Ruby Rose and Anna Kendrick are just a few of the stars to share their support for Page.
Since the day 1 of his revelation, the social media of the actor was inundated with warm reception, love and blessings both from the fans and the transgender community and now that actor took to his Instagram post to express his wholehearted gratitude to all his well-wishers for being the pillars right from the inception.
“Your love and support has been the greatest gift”, says Elliot Page!
He came up with a thanksgiving selfie accompanied by heartwarming words of regard.
“From the bottom of my heart, thank you,” wrote Page on social media. “Your love and support has been the greatest gift. Stay safe. Be there for each other.”
Page also encouraged followers, if they are able, to support the organization Trans Lifeline and initiative Trans Santa. Trans Lifeline is a grassroots hotline and non-profit “offering direct emotional and financial support to trans people in crisis – for the trans community, by the trans community,” according to its website. Trans Santa was launched by “Pose” star Indya Moore to help people send presents to trans youth and young adults in need.
Page concluded the post “See you in 2021. Xoxo Elliot.”
In response to this post launching the announcement of ‘Trans Santa’ came Moore, the founder of the ‘Trans Santa’ project expressing her thanks in abundance.
“This year has been so stressful and especially for trans folks,” Moore said upon the launch of TranSanta. “Trans issues dont receive much visibility or attention unfortunately, but this year has been the most violent and deadly for my community. …
“Please consider visiting the page and reading the heartwarming lists some youth have left, if you are interested in supporting please consider becoming a Santa and filling wish lists for young trans youth in need.”
Both the Trans Lifeline team and Moore were among the first to celebrate Page after he introduced himself in a moving social media post expressing “how remarkable it feels to finally love who I am enough to pursue my authentic self.”
