Actor Elliot Page announced that he is transgender and non-binary in a personal message shared with fans on Instagram today. The 33-year-old star, who is best known for the 2007 film Juno (which earned him an Oscar nomination) and now the Netflix hit series Umbrella Academy, also expressed “overwhelming gratitude” for his journey and the people who supported him through it.

“Hi friends, I want to share with you that I am trans, my pronouns are he/they and my name is Elliot,” Page began the note. “I feel lucky to be writing this. To be here. To have arrived at this place in my life.

“I feel 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. 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.”

Page also asked for patience, revealing that “despite feeling profoundly happy right now and knowing how much privilege I carry, I am also scared.” He cited the ongoing violence and hate targeting the trans community. The Human Rights Campaign reported that at least 40 trans people have been killed in 2020 alone, with a majority of them being Black and Latinx women. It also went on to say that it’s possible many more cases have not been reported.

Also in his letter, Page denounced transphobic discrimination and called out political leaders whose work perpetuates it. “Enough is enough,” he wrote. “You aren’t being ‘cancelled,’ you are hurting people. I am one of those people and we won’t be silent in the face of your attacks.”

The actor ended his note with a message of love and encouragement. “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.”

Page’s post has already sparked an outpouring of love and support from fans across the Internet.
