Oscar-nominated star "Juno" star, Elliot Page took to Twitter to announce that he is transgender. Page said, "Hi friends, I want to share with you that I am trans, my pronouns are he/they and my name is Elliot". Earlier known as Ellen Page, the actor is quite popular and has been a part of many critically-acclaimed films. In a statement, Page wrote,  "I feel lucky to be writing this. To be here. To have arrived at this place in my life."

“I can’t begin to express how remarkable it feels to finally love who I am enough to pursue my authentic self,” Page, who married the choreographer Emma Portner in 2018, went on.

“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.” “Hi friends, I want to share with you that I am trans, my pronouns are he/they and my name is Elliot,” Page wrote in a statement that he posted on Tuesday.

Netizens were thrilled by the announcement and flooded the posts with reactions:

My spirit suffered, my mental health suffered and my relationships suffered. And I’m standing here today, with all of you, on the other side of all that pain.”
