The Umbrella Academy” star, formerly known as Ellen Page, also announced going forward his pronouns are “he” and “they.”

Hi friends, I want to share with you that I am trans, my pronouns are he/they and my name is Elliot. I feel lucky to be writing this. To be here. To have arrived at this place in my life. 

Elliot went on to write: 

I also ask for patience. My joy is real, but it is also fragile. The truth is, despite feeling profoundly happy right now and know how much privilege I Darry, I am also scared. I’m scared of the invasiveness, the hate, the “jokes” and of violence.

Live your best life, Elliot.

I’m just waiting on The Umbrella Academy” season 3.
