It can be recalled that Elliot bravely came out as a transgender late last year on Instagram. “I feel lucky to be writing this. To be here. To have arrived at this place in my life,” he wrote. 

While at the time, he was feeling joyous, he admitted that he was scared “of the invasiveness, the hate, the 'jokes' and of violence.” 

“To be clear, I am not trying to dampen a moment that is joyous and one that I celebrate, but I want to address the full picture,” the LGBTQIA+ rights activist continued, stating instances of discrimination of trans people, which he described as “rife, insidious, and cruel, resulting in horrific consequences.”

“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,” he added.

In his bold transition, it's the little things that have brought him the most joy. "Getting out of the shower and the towel's around your waist and you're looking at yourself in the mirror and you're just like, 'There I am.' And I'm not having the moment where I'm panicked," the actor told Oprah Winfrey. "It's being able to touch my chest and feel comfortable in my body probably the first time."
