    Just when I thought I couldn't love him any more. So courageous and such an advocate for the entire LGBTQ community. I hope he just has thr best life and I personally think this is a good big deal for the trans community

    I still spoke to a gay friend of mine about a year ago and told him i think Elliot might be lesbian or trans, either way, i am happy for him and love the courage he has to take a stand

    They actually came out as queer/gay a little while ago, but they’ve only just come out as trans!

    I wonder what this means for Umbrella Academy! They recently wrote in that their character was queer, I wonder if they’ll write in that they’re trans too.

    I love the phrase that he has used - "a fragile joy". I know exactly what he means.

    What a wonderful, courageous thing he has done.

    Well they might have to make his character trans unless he wants to continue playing the role of a woman. They might just write his character out of the show all together. I don’t know if an actor coming out as trans in the middle of a show has ever happened before. It’s a unique situation and it’ll be interesting to see how they handle it.

    This story blew up my Facebook feed the day it was reported. I normally don't care about celebrity news but this is huge, I'm so excited for him. I also read that his wife is very supportive of him.

    Definitely
    Elliott Page helped me realize my sexuality and he's acted in most of my favorite movies. I wish him the best of luck in his future career
