IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: Elliot Page reveals how his family reacted when he came out as transgender

During an interview with Los Angeles Times, the 36-year-old opened up about how his family reacted to the news. The actor, who publicly came out as trans in December 2020, told the outlet that his family were initially not accepting after he came out as gay. According to the publication, his mother, who was a minister's daughter, told him that homosexuality didn't exist. The outlet stated the initial reactions from Elliot's family led to self-destructive behaviour, including restricting his calorie intake and hitting his head with a hairbrush.
