Elliot accessorised his ensemble with a green rose.
Elliot Page fans can’t keep calm and are showering love upon the actor on social media. “Hopped back to New York for a minute to get Elliott ready to hit the red carpet at the MET Gala. My heart is full. Thank you Elliot for having me be part of this special day (sic),” wrote one. “Just look at this handsome man. have a nice day (sic),” said another.
The Juno star now uses both he/him and they/them pronouns. He made the landmark move and revealed his sexual identity last year. An excerpt from his open letter read, “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 (sic).”
Elliot Page has worked to bring the lives of LGBTQ characters to the screen. He starred and produced the 2015 film Freeheld, where he played the partner of a dying New Jersey police detective who had been denied pension benefits.
