Juno, X-Men, and Umbrella Academy star Elliot Page has posted their first selfie since publicly coming out as trans, and he is looking great.
“From the bottom of my heart, thank you. Your love and support has been the greatest gift.
Stay safe. Be there for each other,” he wrote in a post that quickly got over one million likes.
Page also asked followers to support Indya Moore’s Transanta project, and Trans Lifeline, the first transgender support and crisis line in North America. You can reach Trans Lifeline at 877-565-8860 in the US and 877-330-6366 in Canada. They also provide microgrants for ID changes for trans people.
Transanta, which was started by Moore in collaboration with Chase Strangio, Kyle Lasky, and Pidgeon Pagonis, is a program where trans youth can submit letters and lists of things they want for Christmas and people can sign up to be their Santa and buy those gifts.
Page first came out as trans in a post shared on their social media back on December 1. In the initial post, Page said, “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.” They were flooded with support and celebrations from fans online and their peers in Hollywood and the trans community.
