The anticipated memoir Pageboy will be a candid snapshot into the life of transgender actor Elliot Page.
Elliot Page takes to social media recently to announce the release of his new memoir ‘Pageboy’. His new book, out 2023, will openly account his life, relationships, and transition in 2020.
His breakout role is in Judd Aparow’s 2007 film, ‘Juno’. Also, Fischer in the Christopher Nolan blockbuster ‘Inception’. In December of 2020, Page came out as a transgender man on social media, affirming:
“Hi friends, I want to share with you that I am trans, my pronouns are he/they and my name is Elliot.”
Page is met with an abundance of support from the community once he shares candid images of his transition. After undergoing top surgery, Page expresses the liberation he is able to feel; and how it completely changed his life. However, any online announcement is often met with scrutiny and misunderstanding.
“What I was anticipating was a lot of support and love and a massive amount of hatred and transphobia,” he said to Time Magazine.
Coming of Age
In 2021, Page was the first transgender man to appear on the front cover of Time Magazine. In the interview, he spoke about wishing to be a boy when he was just 9 years old and how comforting it was to cut his hair short.
“I felt like a boy,”
The book is coming to shelves by 2023. Bryn Clark, the Senior Editor at publishing company ‘Flatiron Books’, described the memoir as breath-taking, stating:
“Elliot’s story pieces together a complicated coming of age where he struggles to maintain his strong sense of self in the face of a society that slowly fractures and fragments anyone who doesn’t fit into a binary-driven world.”
After Page has finally transitioned into how he has always perceived himself, it is a no-brainer that ‘Pageboy’ will be a best seller.
