Elliot Page is celebrating his body!
On Wednesday, the 36-year-old star took to Instagram to share a picture of himself posing shirtless and smiling at the camera. Alongside the snapshot, Elliot also got very vulnerable about his past struggles with his body, writing:
“Dysphoria used to be especially rife in the summer. No layers, just a T-shirt – or layers and oh so sweaty – constantly looking down, readjusting my oversized T.”
But now, the Oscar nominee said “it feels so f’ing good soaking in the sun.” He continued to express his gratitude for how far he’s come in this journey, saying:
“I never thought I could experience this, the joy I feel in my body. I am so grateful for what gender affirming care has allowed me and I look forward to sharing more of my journey soon. #transjoy.”
It is great to see Elliot so happy and thriving! You can check out the post (below):
