Umbrella Academy star Elliot Page came back to social media to appreciate fans for their love and support after she came out as trans earlier this month.
Page — known for portraying Vanya Hargreeves in the hit Netflix series — showed their gratitude for the outpouring of love that followed the actor’s announcement that he was trans on Twitter earlier this month; the tweet stated their name change and their pronouns, which are he/they. “From the bottom of my heart, thank you. Your love and support has been the greatest gift,” they said in the caption of a selfie on Instagram. “Stay safe. Be there for each other. If you are able, support @transanta and @translifeline. See you in 2021. Xoxo Elliot.”

Jennifer Garner said, “Major, huge love to you, Elliot,” while James Gunn showed his love with a simple heart emoji. Trans Lifeline — a hotline dedicated to helping trans people through peer and crisis support — also thanked Page for spreading the word about their work.
