A conversation with Elliot Page

The trans icon discusses his memoir “Pageboy,” the responsibility of stardom and the importance of queer friendships

Canadian actor Elliot Page sat down with Xtra to talk about his recent memoir and what he hopes people take away from reading it.

“I hope that in being myself, existing as myself, it can offer a reflection, of feeling less alone . And that I can use my privilege and platform to help shift things in the way that I can,” Page says.

He also discusses his book tour that is teeming with queer and trans icons, his thoughts on being a possibility model for trans youth, and much more.
