Elliot Page is melting hearts after posting a photo wearing a “Protect Trans Kids” sweatshirt.

The actor gave a shout out to the trans and non-binary designer in his Instagram caption and called the sweater “rad.”

The sweatshirt has been designed by independent artist MegEmikoArt and it’s available from Etsy here.

They have also confirmed that 30 per cent of proceeds are donated to Marsha P Johnson Institute, who support Black transgender folks.

Page came out as trans in December 2020, writing on social media: “Hi friends, I want to share with you that I am trans, my pronouns are he/they and my name is Elliot.

“I feel lucky to be writing this. To be here. To have arrived at this place in my life.”

Since then the Umbrella Academy star has shared his “trans joy” on social media, with a shirtless photo wearing his first pair of swimming trunks.

Plus he also sat down for an in-depth interview with Oprah Winfrey, which saw him call out Republicans for spreading harmful lies and misinformation about young trans people.

His latest picture, wearing a “Protect Trans Kids” jumper received an amazing response from his Instagram followers, including the creator of the sweatshirt.

Meg, a trans and non-binary artist who runs Etsy store MegEmikoArt, commented: “Ahh!! 😭❤️ thank you so much, Elliot! It’s such an honor to see you wearing my apparel!”.
