Umbrella Academy and Juno Star Elliott Page Announced Transgender

Academy Award-nominated actor Elliott Page has announced that she is transgender on her social media account. In a statement published on Twitter and Instagram accounts, Elliott Page identified it as transgender and shared the use of pronouns.

“I am overwhelmingly grateful to the wonderful people who have supported me on this trip,” the page writes. “I can’t start expressing how wonderful it feels to finally love enough people to pursue my true self.”

“I also seek patience. My joy is real, but it’s also fragile. The truth is, despite feeling very happy now and knowing how privileged I am. I’m scared too. ”In his statement, Page turned his attention to violence against transgender people.

“Statistics are staggering. Discrimination against transgender is widespread, insidious, cruel and terrifying. In 2020 alone, at least 40 transgender people were reported to have been killed. Most were black and Latin trans women. “

“Make it sloppy. You’re not being” canceled “, you’re hurting people. I am one of them and will not be silent in the face of your attack. “

Pages are best known for their various roles. Recently, he is known not only for Netflix’s hit series The Umbrella Academy, but also for blockbusters such as the X-Men franchise and Inception, and video games such as Beyond: Two Souls. Page became mainstream with indie hits like Junho, which is why he was nominated for an Academy Award among other praises.

The page writes as follows. “I love being transgender, and I love being strange, and I hug myself tightly and fully accept who I am. The more I dream, the more my heart grows and prospers. “
