Elliot Page shares 1st selfie post coming out as transgender; Says fans' love & support is the 'greatest gift'

On December 1, Elliot Page came out as transgender on Instagram and was met with an overwhelming response filled with love and support for The Umbrella Academy star. Weeks later, Page took to IG yet again to share his first handsome selfie along with a heartfelt message to his fans and everyone else who showed their affection towards the 33-year-old actor's brave decision.

"From the bottom of my heart, thank you. Your love and support has been the greatest gift. Stay safe. Be there for each other. If you are able, support @transanta and @translifeline. See you in 2021. Xoxo Elliot," Elliot penned. In his selfie, Page kept it simple in a navy blue polo shirt which was paired with a black hoodie and simple round-framed spectacles. Amongst those who commented on Elliot's IG post was his Juno co-star Jennifer Garner, who commented, "Major, huge love to you, Elliot," along with a red heart emoticon.

While Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn left a red heart emoticon in the comments section, Miley Cyrus liked Page's post.
