Earlier since the morning, Elliot Page has been driving the fans crazy and his transformation to transgender is now in the top headlines of the media. The Canadian Hollywood actor, Elliot Page comes out with the transformation, and he has also changed his name to Elliot. He took it to Twitter to announce about this transformation, which of course, plays a vital role in his life. He even adds on to it saying that despite the fact that he is profoundly happy, he is scared, too, at the same time. In an announcement on Tuesday, he said that he has been inspired by a lot of people from the community, and thus, he decides to do the same. Consequently, the 33 year old Juno star has also mentioned that while he is happy to announce the news, he is also scared of the invasiveness, the jokes and the violence that could be at his way.
The “Juno” star shared in a tweet on Tuesday, “I want to share with you that I am trans, my pronouns are he/they, and my name is Elliot.” He further added, “I feel lucky to be writing this. To be here. To have arrived in this place in my life.” He also wrote, “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.”
Elliot Page took things to Twitter supporting the LGBTQ community
Elliot Page wrote, “Thank you for your courage, your generosity and ceaselessly working to make this world a more inclusive and compassionate place.” He added, “I will offer whatever support I can and continue to strive for a more loving and equal society.” Adding to it, he mentioned, “I love that I am trans, 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 the 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.”
Elliot Page is advocating the LGBTQ community
Ellen has even wrote, “To be clear, I am not trying to dampen a moment that is joyous and one that I celebrate, but I want to address the full picture, The statistics are staggering. The discrimination towards trans people is rife, insidious and cruel, resulting in horrific consequences.” Also, we should not forget to mention that the LGBTQ advocacy group GLAAD wrote on Twitter about Page quoting about him as, “has given us fantastic characters on-screen, and has been an outspoken advocate for all LGBTQ people. Elliot Page will now be an inspiration to countless trans and non-binary people. We celebrate him. All trans people deserve to be accepted.”
We have further learnt that Elliot’s wife has been feeling extremely proud of her husband, and she completely supports this thought and on top of that, she has got absolutely no objection on this decision regarding the transformation. Besides, it is back during the year 2014 that Elliot Page, who is now known by the name “Elliot,” has come up as a lesbian before he came out as a transgender. Indeed, he has taken a big step in his life and we are hoping this community to be built up as a better place to thrive in! We would certainly love to call Ellen by his new name with a new identity altogether!
