Elliot Page Umbrella academy and Juno star has come out as transgender. Elliot Page was already a part of the community but has recently come out of the closet. I and so many others are super proud of him. We wish him the best of luck. It has been reported that he will continue to play Vanya Hargreevs in the Umbrella  Academy. Elliot Page has announced that his pronouns are now he/they. It may be a little bit “challenging” to use they/them pronouns for some of us but we do use them everyday. Here are some ways you can use they/them pronouns. They went to the store. I want to go see them. They went to the park. Now that I gotimage.png that out of the way I do hope to not see people either misgendering them on purpose or dead naming them. Dead naming means to use somebody’s name that they had before they came out. They have made this decision in their life and people should respect that and if they don’t then they should just keep their mouth shut.“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.” said Elliot Page. It is heartwarming to hear that people have already started accepting them. I don’t quite understand why anyone would not accept them but I am glad that people are. It is quite inspirational. It must be hard to come out as transgender to the Hollywood community. There are tons of homophobic and or transphobic people in the community and hopefully they accept Elliot for who he is.
