Elliot Page’s summer is going swimmingly.
Page posted a poolside photo of himself soaking in the sun on Monday, marking the first shirtless photo he’s shared since undergoing “life-changing” and “lifesaving” top surgery, a procedure to remove breast tissue for transgender men, according to Mayo Clinic.
Page showcases his rock-hard abs in red swim trunks, a blue baseball cap and aviator sunglasses, but the real showstopper is his radiating smile. He captioned his photo with the hashtags #transjoy and #transisbeautiful.
“You look amazing… and most of all happy,” commented actress Nina Dobrev. Page’s “The Umbrella Academy” co-star Britne Oldford added, “Man, you are beaming!”
“Broad City” comedian Ilana Glazer wrote “look a dat handsome boi” and actress Julianne Moore added, “Happy summer @elliotpage.”
What does that mean? Stars like Demi Lovato, Elliot Page, Sam Smith identify as nonbinary.
In March, Page revealed in his cover story for Time’s March/April issue that he underwent top surgery, which he said “completely transformed my life.”
In April, he opened up about being able to identity with himself after his procedure during a sit down with Oprah Winfrey on “The Oprah Conversation,” (streaming on Apple TV+.)
“Getting out of the shower and the towel’s around your waist, and you’re looking at yourself in the mirror and you’re just like, ‘there I am’ and I’m not having the moment where I’m panicked,” Page said, wiping away “tears of joy.”
Page came out as transgender on Instagram in December following solitude of the COVID-19 pandemic to “connect” to his body and “fully listen” to himself.
“I love that I am trans,” he wrote. “And I love that I am queer. And the more I hold myself close and fully embrace who I am, the more I dream, the more my heart grows and the more I thrive.”
