Ellen Page, protagonist of “Juno”, announced to her fans and, incidentally, to the world that she is recognized as trans and that her name is Elliot.
“Hello friends. I want to share with you that I am trans, my personal pronoun is he / they (in their first language) and my name is Elliot. I feel very lucky to be writing this. To be here. To have come to this place at this time in my life, “he said at 33.

There, the actor thanked those who have accompanied him on this path. “I can’t express how amazing it feels to finally love myself enough to pursue the real me,” she expressed.
Then, the actor – who has already changed his name on his social media accounts – asked for “patience.” “The truth is that despite how deeply happy I feel at this moment, and knowing the privilege I have, I am also afraid,” he added.
And he assured: “I am scared of invasiveness, hatred, ‘jokes’ and violence. To be clearer, I am not trying to ruin a moment that is jubilant and that I celebrate, but I want to refer to the big picture.
“I love being trans, I love being queer, and the more I accept who I am, the more I dream and the more my heart grows and the more I thrive,” Elliot noted.
“To all trans people who live with bullying, self-hatred, abuse and threats of violence every day: I see you, I love you and I will do everything I can to make this world better,” he said.
