The Oscar-nominated Canadian star of the film "Juno" has come out as transgender.

The Halifax-raised Elliot Page, formerly known as Ellen Page, made the announcement in a powerful post on social media.

The star of the Toronto-shot Netflix series "The Umbrella Academy" says his preferred pronouns are he/they.

Page's letter thanks those who have supported him along the journey, and addresses the trauma trans people face from discrimination, hateful acts, and a lack of rights.

He says it feels remarkable "to finally love" who he is enough to pursue his "authentic self."

And he's been "endlessly inspired by so many in the trans community."
