Elliot Page Says His Top Surgery Was 'Not Only Life-Changing But Lifesaving'

When Elliot Page penned a note in late December of last year disclosing that he was a transgender man (who used he/they pronouns), it was a powerful moment across offline and online communities. For someone in the public eye to do that vulnerable work of introducing that part of themselves (with grace and some devoted attention to his community) and to let the world share in celebrating their truth — even in a small way — meant a lot to so many other trans folks young and old. And it’s that sense of responsibility toward and love for trans and queer youth that can be felt in just about every interaction Page has had since coming out.
