Elliot Page is ready for the summer. The 34-year-old The Umbrella Academy actor shared his first shirtless photo on Instagram – in swim trunks by the poolside – since coming out as trans in December 2020.

He captioned his Tuesday (May 25) post, “Trans bb’s first swim trunks”, and added the hashtags #transjoy and #transisbeautiful.

Page revealed in a past interview that he had undergone top surgery and in his chat with Oprah Winfrey for the latter’s Apple TV+ series in April, he said that the part of his transition journey that brought him the most joy was being able to touch his chest and feel comfortable in his body.

Numerous comments on Page’s Instagram post mentioned the actor’s visible abs as well as the big smile on his face.

Actress Nina Dobrev wrote: "You look amazing. And most of all happy".

Model-actress Ruby Rose wrote, “You look phenomenal”. Game Of Thrones star Lena Headey went with three heart emojis, while singer Miley Cyrus just wrote, "Hot".

Page, who was nominated for an Oscar for Juno in 2008, has embraced his role as an advocate for the trans community. 

He told Winfrey that it felt imperative for him to detail his coming out journey publicly because of the time we’re in right now where there’s been “horrible backlash” towards trans people, particularly trans youth.
