An actor who changed gender

Caitlyn Jenner and Laverne Cox are two of the most famous members of the transgender community, but they are far from alone. Here’s an introduction to the trans athletes, activists, models, actors, directors and political figures making enormous impacts. Many of the people in this gallery have appeared on Time magazine’s annual list of the 100 most influential people. In December 2020, Elliot Page, star of the Netflix series “Umbrella Academy,” announced that he is transgender.  In May 2021, in an interview with Oprah, the actor spoke about the benefits of gender-affirming healthcare. “It’s getting out of the shower and the towel is around your waist and you’re looking at yourself in the mirror and you’re just like, ‘There I am,'” Page said.
