Elliot Page also confidently announced a change in his sexual identification and said that while his happiness is real through that change, it is also vulnerable. Because he is also afraid of the reaction of the environment, pointing the finger, making jokes and violence. He recalled that at least 40 transgender people have been murdered in the US this year alone. It calls on politicians and other influential people to stop attacking this community and not to hate it. This is also the reason why 40 percent of transgender people attempt suicide at least once in their life.
Elliot Page was still known as Elen Page, especially as a cult figure of a pregnant teen in the movie Juno (2007), but also Inception (2010) or X-Men: Days of Future Past. For the past two years he has devoted almost exclusively to the Netflix series The Umbrella Academy.
Elliot Page isn’t the first Hollywood actor in the transgender community. Probably the best known of these are sisters Lana and Lilly Wachowska, who, like Laurence and Andrew Wachowski, have directed films such as the Matrix trilogy or the title V for Vendeta (2005). A well-known transrod character is also Laverne Cox, who also presented the hardships of this community in the series Orange is the new Black produced by Netflix. And on which she released a video for two days about the attack she experienced while jogging in Los Angeles.
