Umbrella Academy fans are crying over Elliot Page’s ‘perfect’ handling of transition story

The Umbrella Academy Fans have praised the show’s handling of a gender transition storyline in relation to the character played by Elliot Page.

Page came out as trans in real life after the Netflix series released its second season.

In the third season, his character Viktor Hargreeves – previously named Vanya – also appears as trans, a story developed after Page appeared.

When the series debuted on the streaming service on Wednesday (June 22), fans shared their reactions to the storyline on social media, with many praising it as a positive example of how trans people are portrayed on screen.

“As a transsexual, I can say that Victor’s coming out scene was handled perfectly,” one person wrote.

“It’s time for Elliot Page to shine,” wrote another. “What a real gift to have a trans man who keeps a hell of a lot of Netlfix notebooks. Stunning.”

“Do not spoil anything with Umbrella Academy but my god I almost cried a lot on Viktor’s episode,” wrote another fan. “It makes me so happy that Elliot Page can just be himself.”

The Umbrella Academy is now available to stream on Netflix.
