Hollywood is abuzz this week after Elliot Page, formerly known as Ellen Page, announced that he is transgender. He has chosen his name as Elliot and prefers to use the ‘he/him’ pronoun. The actor is well known for his role of Vanya Hargreeves in the popular Netflix series, The Umbrella Academy. Thankfully, he also announced that he will continue to play the role of Vanya and his announcement does not affect his career as an actor.

The world had expressed mixed, and confused, reactions online especially since he originally came out as a lesbian back in 2014. Regardless, everyone seems to support him and Twitter is exploding with messages of praise and support. Here are some of them:
