After disclosing he was transgender last year, The Umbrella Academy’s Elliot Page shares a joyful shirtless photo marking another milestone moment.
The Umbrella Academy star, Elliot Page, shares a joyful shirtless photo celebrating his first swim trunks. The Oscar-nominated actor announced he was transgender in an open letter late last year. As one of the most high-profile Hollywood stars to disclose their gender as transgender, Page’s announcement made waves worldwide. The reception was mostly positive, and Page thanked fans for their love and support in an Instagram post later that month.
One of Page’s seminal film roles came in 2005 with Hard Candy, followed by X-Men: The Last Stand a year later. These notable roles led to his Oscar-nominated performance in Juno, which starred Page as an offbeat teenager coping with an unplanned pregnancy. Page gained further prominence as Leonardo DiCaprio’s sidekick in Christopher Nolan’s mind-bending blockbuster, Inception. Page went on to reprise his X-Men role in Days of Future Past in 2014 and has been a star on Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy as Vanya Hargreeves for 2 seasons with a third currently in production.

Now, Elliot Page is sharing a photo of another milestone moment. The actor posted a joyful shirtless picture of himself by the pool in celebration of his first pair of swim trunks. The photo, captioned “Trans bb’s first swim trunks,” was praised by other stars from Page’s Freeheld co-star, Julianne Moore, to Nina Dobrev and Miley Cyrus. Check out the photo below:
Page has been very open about his experiences since disclosing his gender, including during a recent sit down with Oprah on her Apple TV+ show, The Oprah Conversation. During the interview, the actor shared some details about his recent transition surgery, calling it “life-saving” and sharing how it allowed him to feel comfortable in his body for the first time. In March, Page became the first transgender man ever to appear on the cover of Time magazine. Now, this shirtless photo marks another milestone moment for the actor.
While there has not been much information regarding the future of Page’s character on The Umbrella Academy, Netflix did confirm he will continue to portray Vanya on the show. A Netflix show has featured a transgender actor before in Laverne Cox on Orange Is the New Black, but Page appearing in The Umbrella Academy for the first time post-transition will undoubtedly mark another major milestone for the actor and the trans movement at large.
