Elliot Page (Oscar nominee) Wiki – Elliot Page (Oscar nominee) Biography
On Sunday, Oscar nominee Elliot Page shared his first selfie since his December 1 gender affirmation to thank fans for their ‘love and support.’
‘From the bottom of my heart, thank you,’ the Canadian 33-year-old transgender trailblazer – who boasts 8.5M social media followers – wrote.
‘Your love and support has been the greatest gift. Stay safe. Be there for each other. If you are able, support @transanta and @translifeline. See you in 2021!’
Page’s Instagram post received glowing comments from his former X-Men co-star Shawn Ashmore, Pose star Indya Moore, and disabled IMG Model Jillian Mercado.
Earlier this month, Elliot (born Ellen Philpotts-Page) revealed he now uses both he/him and they/them pronouns – describing himself as transgender and non-binary.
‘I can’t begin to express how remarkable it feels to finally love who I am enough to pursue my authentic self,’ the There’s Something in the Water director explained.
‘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 continued: ‘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.’
Elliot previously came out as a lesbian in 2014 during a speech at the Human Rights Campaign’s ‘Time to Thrive’ conference in Las Vegas.
For the last two years, the Emmy nominee has been married to Canadian dancer Emma Portner, whom he met in 2017.
The 26-year-old professional hoofer – who deleted all of her social media – is probably best known for starring in Justin Bieber’s Life Is Worth Living video and Purpose World Tour.
Page will next resume his role as cis-woman sound superhero/violinist Vanya Hargreeves aka The White Violin in the third season of The Umbrella Academy, which was renewed last month.
