In 2007, cel­e­brat­ed her break­through as a preg­nant tea girl in “Juno”. Sev­en years lat­er, the actress made pub­lic that she was les­bian at a con­fer­ence. Now she comes out again and announces on social media that she is now called Elliot and that she is a man. At a con­fer­ence of the “Human Rights Cam­paign” Ellen Page made her homo­sex­u­al­i­ty pub­lic 13 years ago. At the time she said she was tired of hid­ing. Noth­ing has changed to this day. After she mar­ried the dancer Emma Port­ner almost three years ago, she now announces that she wants to live as a man from now on. “I would like to let you know that I am , my name is Elliot,” wrote Page in a state­ment pub­lished on Insta­gram and Twit­ter. The accounts are already run­ning under this name. The text fur­ther states that Page would like to be addressed with “he” (er) or “they” (gen­der-neu­tral pro­noun) in the future. con­tin­ues: “I feel so hap­py to write this, to be here, to have reached this point in my life.” The 33-year-old thanks the “incred­i­ble peo­ple” who sup­port­ed him on his jour­ney. “I love that I’m queer” His joy is real, but also frag­ile. “The

truth is that although I feel deeply hap­py right now and know how many priv­i­leges I have in me, I am also afraid”. Fear of hatred, “jokes” and vio­lence. “The sta­tis­tics are stag­ger­ing. Dis­crim­i­na­tion against trans­gen­der peo­ple is wide­spread, insid­i­ous and cru­el, with dire con­se­quences.” Sui­cide attempts and mur­ders of trans­gen­der peo­ple serve him as ter­ri­fy­ing exam­ples. “I love that I’m trans. And I love that I’m queer. And the more I hug myself tight­ly and hug myself for who I am, the more I dream, the more my heart grows and the more I am thriv­ing “, Page con­tin­ues in the long text. He wants to do every­thing to change the world for the bet­ter. Mean­while, numer­ous fol­low­ers have com­ment­ed on the post on Insta­gram, includ­ing singer Miley Cyrus, who writes: “Elliot rules”, sup­ple­ment­ed by sev­er­al black heart emo­jis. Fel­low actress Ruby Rose express­es her affec­tion and sup­port by say­ing “love love love you!” out. And Page’s wife Emma Port­ner writes: “I love you so much, Elliot!”
