“I feel lucky to be writing this. To have arrived at this place in my life.”
Elliot expressed gratitude and thanks for the support that he has received from loved ones. And tweeted, “The truth is, despite feeling profoundly happy right now and knowing how much privilege I carry, I am also scared.” Elliot has updated social media, changing profile pictures and usernames.
Emma, Elliot’s wife showed her support too on Instagram, and said, “’I am so proud of @elliotpage. Trans, queer and non-binary people are a gift to this world,
“I also ask for patience & privacy [and] that you join me in the fervent support of trans life every single day. Elliot’s existence is a gift in and of itself. Shine on sweet E. Love you so much.”
