Some may remember him from Juno, while the younger audience may associate him with Umbrella Academy, but nonetheless, we can all agree on Elliot Page being a genius actor. And after he came out as transgender this Tuesday, celebrities flooded social media with support.

Elliot previously came out as gay back in 2014. This week, he announced in a letter shared on his social media that he prefers he/him and they/them pronouns.  “I feel lucky to be writing this. To be here. To have arrived at this place in my life,” Elliot shared in an emotional post.

“Hi friends, I want to share with you that I am trans, my pronouns are he/they and my name is Elliot. I feel lucky to be writing this. To be here. To have arrived at this place in my life,” Elliot wrote in a letter shared on social media.

“I feel overwhelming gratitude for the incredible people who have supported me along the 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.”

“I also ask patience. My joy is real, but it is also fragile. The truth is, despite feeling profoundly happy right now and knowing how much privilege I carry, I am also scared. I’m scared of the invasiveness, the hate, the ‘jokes’ and of violence. 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. In 2020 alone it has been reported that at least 40 transgender people have been murdered, the majority of which were Black and Latinx trans women. To the political leaders who work to criminalize trans health care and deny our right to exist and to all of those with a massive platform who continue to spew hostility towards the trans community: you have blood on your hands. 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 ‘canceled,’ you are hurting people. I am one of those people and we won’t be silent in the face of your attacks.”

“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.”

Both Elliot’s Instagram and Twitter accounts were flooded with messages of support from all around the world, including some A-listers. “Love you Elliot!” Jameela Jamilo commented on Instagram. “Elliot rules!” wrote Miley Cyrus, accompanying her message with black heart emojis.

Of course, not only celebrities were celebrating Elliot’s big moment. On Twitter, one user left a heartfelt message: “When I came out as trans and chose my name, I put my thoughts on a table and tried to decide why the name I’d picked resonated with me so deeply. My brain kept coming back to sharing a name with you. I don’t anymore, but I share something even better now”
