The very young actress gave a very moving speech in which she openly declared “I am gay” and explained that she was “tired of hiding and lying by omission”.
A long journey
It is the star of Juno who announced the news of his transidentity on social networks. “I’m lucky to write this. To be here. To be here at this point in my life,” said Elliot Page. “I am overwhelmed by the gratitude for all those people who have supported me on this journey. I cannot tell you how grateful I am to love myself enough to seek out my authentic self.”
The flagship face of the Netflix series Umbrella Academy, in the skin of Vanya Hargreeves, the much underrated number 7, Elliot Page has announced that he will continue to play her in season three of the soap opera, thus slipping into the skin of a cisgender woman (who recognizes herself in the gender assigned to her at birth).
