Elliot Page Thanks Supporters In First Post Since Coming Out As Transgender
Elliot Page thanked his supporters on Sunday in his first Instagram post since he came out as a non-binary and transgender person earlier this month.
“Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Your love and support was the greatest gift, ”wrote the 33-year-old actor. "Stay safe. Be there for each other."
He encouraged fans to donate to two organizations that support and stand up for trans people, Trans Lifeline and TranSanta.
Page, best known for his roles on "Juno" and "The Umbrella Academy", announced his gender identity in early December, telling fans that he would use the pronouns "he" and "she".
“I love that I'm trans. And I love that I'm weird. And the more I hold on and fully embrace who I am, the more my heart grows and the more I thrive, ”wrote Page.
"To all trans people who deal with harassment, self-hatred, abuse and the threat of violence every day: I see you, I love you and I will do anything to change this world for the better."
His comments have been endorsed by celebrities such as Julianne Moore, Ruby Rose, Lena Dunham, Natalie Portman, Kate Mara, Laura Linney and many others, as well as thousands of fans and well-wishers.
Page's wife, dancer and choreographer Emma Portner said she was "so proud" of him and asked for patience and privacy, as well as followers who join her "every day for passionate support for trans life."
