Earlier this week, news broke that the actor, Ellen Page, had come out as transgender.
Page, who is perhaps best known for starring in Juno and The Umbrella Academy, announced the news on a series of social media platforms.
Hi friends. I want to share with you that I am trans, my pronouns are he/they.
The post continued:
I feel lucky to be writing this. To be here. To have arrived at this place in my life. I feel overwhelming gratitude for the incredible people who have supported me along this journey. I can’t begin to express how remarkable it feels to finally love who I am enough to pursue my authentic self. I’ve been endlessly inspired by so many in the trans community. Thank you for your courage, your generosity and ceaselessly working to make this world a more inclusive and compassionate place. I will offer whatever support I can and continue to strive for a more loving and equal society.
Page also confirmed that they would now be going under the name Elliot.
Remember earlier this year when Ellen DeGeneres had the worst summer of her life following a plethora of allegations against her?
Well… now she’s being ‘cancelled’ again… Why? For her response following Elliot Page’s big announcement.
Ellen tweeted Elliot simply writing:
Sending love to my friend, @TheElliotPage. You inspire me with your strength, courage and honesty.
Nothing wrong with that really. But people still aren’t happy with many calling Ellen a ‘hypocrite’.
It might also inspire Ellen to not be such an asshole to her staff— C_Barrett9 (@C_Barrett9) December 2, 2020
