Elliot Page Denounces "Devastating" Rollback of LGBTQ2+ Rights at 2024 Juno Awards

Story by Etan Vlessing (24 March 2024)

Elliot Page came to the Junos Awards on Sunday night to denounce a rollback of LGBTQ2+ rights after the Umbrella Academy star came out as a transgender and nonbinary at the end of 2020.   

"We are at a time in history where the rights of LGBTQ2+ people are being revoked, restricted and eliminated throughout the world, and the effects are devastating," Page said when citing the work by the Tegan and Sara Foundation to support and build social change for trans and queer youth at the Junos in his hometown of Halifax, Nova Scotia.

"If the world was not so hostile to LGBTQ2+ people, we would see ourselves purely as musicians," Sara Quin, one half of the Canadian indie pop musicians Tegan and Sara, told the Juno audience. She called out the province of Alberta for recently proposing to restrict health care for transgender youth, including halting access to hormone therapy for children aged 15 and under.

"Advocating for our community's rights is a great privilege and we are dedicated to confronting any form of discrimination that threatens the well-being of our community," Sara Quin added as sister Tegan and Page looked on in Halifax.
