Elliot Page thanked his supporters on Sunday in his first Instagram post since coming out as a nonbinary and transgender person earlier this month.

“From the bottom of my heart, thank you. Your love and support has been the greatest gift,” the 33-year-old actor wrote. “Stay safe. Be there for each other.”

He encouraged fans to donate to two organizations that support and advocate for trans people, Trans Lifeline and TranSanta.

Page, known for his roles in “Juno” and “The Umbrella Academy,” made the announcement about his gender identity at the start of December and told fans he would be using the pronouns “he” and “they.”

“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 my heart grows and the more I thrive,” Page wrote.

“To all the 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.”

His comments were flooded with support from celebrities including Julianne Moore, Ruby Rose, Lena Dunham, Natalie Portman, Kate Mara, Laura Linney and many others, as well as thousands of fans and well-wishers.

Page’s wife, dancer and choreographer Emma Portner, said she was “so proud” of him and asked for patience and privacy and for followers to join her in “the fervent support of trans life every single day.”
