The actor is known for his Oscar nominated role in Juno, as good as Start and more recently Umbrella Academy. He reached out to his social media followers on Tuesday with a long post, in which he said he was trans and used the pronouns him or them.
“I feel lucky to write this. To be here. To have arrived at this place in my life. I feel immense gratitude for the amazing people who have supported me throughout this trip, ”Page wrote.
“I like the fact that I’m trans. And I like the fact that I’m queer. And the closer I stand and fully embrace who I am, the more I dream, the more my heart grows and the more I prosper. ”
The page describes the “fragile” joy
Page said he was inspired by many members of the trans community and thanked them for their courage, generosity, and work in making the world more inclusive and compassionate.
If Page has said that her joy is real, she is also “fragile”. Although he feels deeply happy and recognizes his privilege, he is also afraid of invasion, hatred, jokes and violence.
He cites the Human Rights Campaign figure that nearly 40 trans people were killed in the United States in 2020 alone, the majority of whom are trans women of color.
” Enough is enough. You are not “canceled”, you are hurting people. I am one of those people and we will not be silent in the face of your attacks, ”Page wrote.
Surge of appreciation
The letter was met with a surge of appreciation on social media, with Canadian musicians Tegan and Sara

Profound love and admiration for you @TheElliotPage !! Your strength, bravery and activism - not to mention all the art you contribute to this earth - is truly special.

The official Umbrella Academy and Netflix accounts also tweeted their support, saying they were “proud of our superhero,” in a nod to Page’s character Vanya on the popular show.
For years, Page has been one of Hollywood’s most visible queer actors since he came out public as gay in 2014 in a moving speech at the Time to Thrive conference, an event for LGBTQ youth.
He married New York dance teacher Emma Portner a few years ago, and the 2016 series Gaycation saw Page and Ian Daniel explore LGBTQ cultures around the world.
Page is also an avid environmental activist, and made his directorial debut alongside Daniel with There is something in the water, a documentary screened at TIFF last year.
Based on a book of the same name by Professor Ingrid Waldron at Dalhousie University, the documentary examines environmental racism – how climate change disproportionately affects communities of color – in Nova’s home province of Page -Scotland.
Through this project, Page learned about the challenges the people of Shelburne, Nova Scotia had with contaminated wells. He pledged the money needed for a new community well in the south of the city, which the local council agreed to in February.
