2 min read

Elliot Page’s summer is going swimmingly.

The 34-year-old Oscar nominated actor, who came out as transgender last December in a social media post, celebrated a new milestone on Instagram: “Trans bb’s first swim trunks.”

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.”

Actor Elliot Page came out as transgender in Dec. 2020, announcing his new pronouns and name via social media.

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.”
