In their first meeting since coming out as transsexual, Juno and Umbrella Academy star Elliot Page spoke about their choice to reveal their sexual personality and their cheerleader experience before coming out.
In an article featured on his online media accounts in December, Elliot said, “I need to convey to you that I am trans, my pronouns are he / they and my name is Elliot.”
“I can’t begin to convey how momentous it feels to finally worship who I am enough to seek my true self,” Elliot wrote.
“I love being trans,” she continued. “So, I love that I’m eccentric. What’s more, the more I stay close and fully embrace who I am, the more I dream, the more my heart develops and the more I flourish. “
“To all trans people who handle harassment, self-hatred, misuse and the danger of brutality in a constant way: I see you, I love you and I will do everything I can to improve this world,” he closed his statement .
Currently, in another meeting with Time, Elliot has spoken freely and interestingly about his choice to come out of the closet, saying he feels “genuine energy and deep appreciation for getting to this point in [his] life, mixed with a tone of dread and tension. “
At the meeting, Elliot reviewed how he “needed to be a boy” since he was a child and was eventually allowed to cut his hair around the age of 9.
“I felt like a child,” Elliot read from a watch from his teens. “It needed to be a boy. I would ask if it could be sometime in the not too distant future. “
“I became a skilled artist at age ten,” he continued, saying that his way of calling implied that he needed to develop his hair again to “look in a specific way.”
