Elliot made an announcement back on December 1st , said he felt “lucky to be writing this. To be here. To have arrived at this place in my life.”

“I love that I am trans. And I love that I am queer. And the more I hold myself close and fully embrace who I am, the more I dream, the more my heart grows and the more I thrive,” he wrote. “To all trans people who deal with harassment, self-loathing, abuse and the threat of violence every day: I see you, I love you and I will do everything I can to change this world for the better.”

Emma Portner who is a dancer and choreographer, openly supported the Umbrella Academy star when he came out as transgender last month.

“Trans, queer and non-binary people are a gift to this world,” Emma wrote on Instagram. “I also ask for patience & privacy but 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.”
