Ellen Page on Tuesday took to Twitter and came out as Trans. He said, "Hi friends, I want to share with you that I am trans, my pronouns are he/they and my name is Elliot." The 'Umbrella Academy' actor in a heartwarming letter shared, "I feel lucky to be writing this. To be here. To have arrived at this place in my life," adding “I feel overwhelming gratitude for the incredible people who have supported me along this journey."

Followers in hordes supported Elliot and called him a "f*****g legend". One fan wrote, "Life is too short to not be able to be your 100%, absolute, true self. Acceptance is slow, the comments section can be disgusting but accepting Elliot Page makes it a little easier for someone, someday far less famous to feel comfortable being their true self." Another fan added, "Thrilled for him and proud of him! I’ve always loved their work and respected them. Much love, Elliot. #elliotpage" Joseph Hernandez retweeted the actor and underlined the statistics that Elliot Page had quoted in the statement and wrote, "You unleash a fury of vile and demeaning rage that lands on the shoulders of the trans community, a community in which 40% of trans adults report attempting suicide. Enough is enough. You aren't being 'cancelled,' you are hurting people."



 



 



 

Many individuals who are from the queer community and allies, also took to note that on a very bad day for the trans community in the UK, Elliot Page's coming out letter is good news. On December 1, three Highcourt judges in the UK have ruled that children under 16 with gender dysphoria are unlikely to be able to give informed consent to undergo treatment with puberty-blocking drugs and have hence said that they may not understand the gravity of their decision or its influence in their future according to a report in BBC

One fan wrote, "After seeing some Not so good news for trans people in the uk, this has made me very happy, i'm so happy for him." Another follower tweeted, "F*****g legend". Another follower noted how Elliot had to steel himself to write the message and wrote, "Love this for him, but also deeply saddened by the fact that steeling yourself for hatred and needless jokes is still a part of coming out." Another follower also wrote, "Picture a time when an announcement like this won't take up every ounce of courage a person has to come out as their true self. Happy for @TheElliotPage in his now public journey. This will inevitably help so many within the LGBTQA community. #ally #TransRightsAreHumanRights."

 



 



 



 



 

As Elliot had stated, it hasn't been all love on Elliot's post as he had feared, cruel jokes followed Elliot's announcement as well. A sarcastic comment read, "Welcome to the white heterosexual male club, once you review Infinite Jest and the Irishman we'll see about adding you to some problematic group DMs." One user also commented, "Another [email protected] decides they are actually a man. What the f**k."



 



 

Elliot ended the letter by saying, "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 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."
