Ellen DeGeneres shares support for ‘inspirational’ Elliot Page as Umbrella Academy star comes out as transgender

Ellen DeGeneres shared her support after Elliot Page came out as transgender.

The Umbrella Academy star shared a heartfelt statement on social media on Tuesday, confirming his pronouns are he/they, with fans and famous faces rushing to praise the words.

Following the post, the Ellen Show host took to Twitter to pen a touching post to the ‘inspirational’ 33-year-old.

‘Sending love to my friend, @TheElliotPage,’ she simply wrote.

‘You inspire me with your strength, courage and honesty.’

Elliot announced they are transgender in a lengthy message, which read: ‘I feel overwhelming gratitude for the incredible people who have supported me along the journey.

 

‘I can’t begin to express how remarkable it feels to finally love who I am enough to pursue my authentic self.’

Slamming the political leaders who are ‘criminalising trans health care and denying our right to exist’, the actor 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.

‘To all trans people who deal with harassment, self-loathing, abuse and the threat of violence every day: I see you, I love you and I will do everything I can to change this world for the better.’

Miley Cyrus led support from celebrities over the Juno favourite’s post, writing: ‘Elliot rules,’ with a string of heart emoji.

‘I also ask for patience & privacy but that you join me in the fervent support of trans life every single day.

‘Elliot’s existence is a gift in and of itself. Shine on sweet E. Love you so much.’

Umbrella Academy stars also shared their love, with Tom Hopper writing: ‘Elliot, I’m so proud of you and even prouder to call you family. All the love.’
