Elliot Page’s Come Out Story
Page came out as transgender on December 1, 2020, writing an emotional letter on Instagram to share the news with the world. He received an outpouring of support after coming out. He thanked fans for their support weeks later and just days before the holidays, calling their love “the greatest gift.”
Page, whose pronouns are he/they, shared the first public moment of his journey earlier this year. After coming out as transgender, Page posted a shirtless photo on Instagram at the end of May. The photograph showed his first time swimming in men’s swim trunks and marked the first shirtless photo he shared of himself publicly after his top surgery.
“Trans bb’s first swim trunks,” he captioned the post, adding the hashtags, “#transjoy #transisbeautiful.”
In March, Page interviewed Time magazine to share coming out and express joy in having the chance to “fully become” himself. He described his mental state as, “This feeling of true excitement and deep gratitude to have made it to this point in my life, mixed with a lot of fear and anxiety.”
The following month, Page sat down with Oprah Winfrey for a lengthy discussion as part of the “Oprah Conversations” series to discuss his coming out and the phases of his transition that brought him happiness. While answering Winfrey’s questions, Page became emotional, trying to convey his answer.
He continued explaining his sentiments, saying, “I’m not having all these little moments that use to be … just being in a t-shirt. It’s being able to touch my chest and feel comfortable in my body, probably for the first time.”
