‘Umbrella Academy’ Star Elliot Page Shares Shirtless Selfie – Again
Umbrella Academy Elliot Page shared a new shirtless selfie on his Instagram Story on August 13.
The Instagram Story was shared on a Friday and had a “TGIF” sticker.
Page had previously shared a shirtless photo beside the pool after undergoing top surgery, sharing the results with his followers.
“Trans bb’s first swim trunks,” he captioned the photo, adding the hashtags “#transjoy” and “#transisbeautiful.”
Page has publicly shared her transition and his surgery, called subcutaneous mastectomy, which is a surgical procedure that removes breast tissue for trans men to alleviate gender dysphoria.
During a March interview with Time, Page revealed that he was recovering after undergoing a subcutaneous mastectomy in December, when he came out as transgender and reintroduced himself as Elliot, switching his pronouns to “he/they.”
The Academy Award nominee made an appearance in Oprah Winfrey’s Apple TV show, The Oprah Conversation.
“I wanted to talk about it for a couple of reasons,” he said, referring to his transition. “I wanted to share with people just how much it has changed my life.”
“I want people to know that not only has it been life-changing for me, I do believe it is life-saving and it’s the case for so many people,” he added. “Because there is such an attack on trans health care right now when already there is such a lack of access or trans people who don’t even want to go to the doctor.”
The actor has been praised for using his platform, with millions of followers on Twitter and Instagram, for bringing awareness to the community and openly sharing his journey.
Page is going to be presented with this year’s Outfest Annual Achievement Award on August 22 at the Outfest Los Angeles LGBTQ Film Festival.
“It gives me great honor to be the recipient of this year’s Outfest Annual Achievement Award and represent the LGBTQ+ community,” he said. “Now more than ever, it is so important for our voices to be amplified and represented in film and media and for people to hear our stories.”
