Actor Elliot Page celebrates 'trans joy' in new Instagram post

| @indiablooms | 12 May 2023, 12:31 am

The Umbrella Academy star Elliot Page, who came out as transgender in 2020, shared a post celebrating "trans joy." 

He posted a shirtless picture of himself on social media and wrote about how gender-affirming care has changed his life.

"Dysphoria used to be especially rife in the summer. No layers, just a T-shirt - or layers and oh so sweaty - constantly looking down, readjusting my oversized T," Page wrote.

"It feels so f****** good soaking in the sun now, I never thought I could experience this, the joy I feel in my body. I am so grateful for what gender affirming care has allowed me and I look forward to sharing more of my journey soon," the star added the hashtag #transjoy to the post.

Elliot Page, formerly known as Ellen Page, opened up about his gender identity in an extensive post in 2020. An excerpt from the open letter read, "I love that I am trans. And I love that I am queer."

Page thanked his supporters and added, "I feel overwhelming gratitude for the incredible people who have supported me along this journey. I can't begin to express how remarkable it feels to finally love who I am enough to pursue my authentic self."
