Oscar Nominee Elliot Page Comes Out As Transgender

The New York Daily News reports:

The actor formerly known as Ellen Page announced he is transgender and now goes by Elliot Page. “I want to share with you that I am trans, my pronouns are he/they, and my name is Elliot,” the “Juno” star shared in a tweet Tuesday. “I feel lucky to be writing this. To be here. To have arrived in this place in my life.”

The Canadian-born Page earned widespread acclaim for the 2007 comedy-drama “Juno,” which chronicles a teenager’s unplanned pregnancy. The performance earned Page nominations at the Academy Awards, the Golden Globes and the BAFTA Awards.
