“I feel immense gratitude for the wonderful people who have helped me on this journey. I cannot begin to express how remarkable it feels to love a true self again. So many people have endlessly inspired me in the trans community. “Thank you for your courage, generosity and ceaselessly working to make this world a more inclusive and humane place,” he added, “to offer whatever support I can and continue to strive for a more loving and equal society.” He went on to ask the public for “patience” as he struggles to manage life in this “fragile” moment. He continues, “The truth is, despite feeling deeply happy right now and recognizing how much privilege I have, I am also worried. I am afraid of invasiveness,” Elliot revealed, adding that the actor also fears “hate, jokes, and abuse after this.” The actor wrote about “staggering statistics” and described prejudice against trans people as “rife, cynical and cruel.” The actor noted that this year at least 40 transgender people were killed” He also accused “politicians to criminalize trans-health care and deny all our rights.” And those who “continue to spread out hostility” to the trans-community, he said, “Enough is enough.”

  1. Don’t say “him”! It may not appreciate the labels. I really hope It learns to handle a cock and balls. And if It does grow Y chromosomes, It must never be cast as a female again. It always had boy titties, anyway.
