Canadian actor Elliot Page has stunned social media after releasing his first shirtless photo since coming out as trans. The 34-year-old won the internet on Sunday, May 24, after showing off his impeccable abs. 

The Oscar-nominated actor came out as trans in December 2020, telling social media, "Hi friends, I want to share with you that I am trans, my pronouns are he/they and my name is Elliot. I feel lucky to be writing this. To be here. To have arrived at this place in my life." He reportedly underwent a "lifesaving" surgery to remove his breasts in Toronto. He also spoke about his experience with Oprah Winfrey on her Apple TV Plus show, 'The Oprah Conversation'. Page told Winfrey, "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."

Amidst the political culture war surrounding LGBTQ+ rights, Page also spoke to TIME about the transition. "My privilege has allowed me to have resources to get through and to be where I am today," he said, "and of course I want to use that privilege and platform to help in the ways I can." Since coming out, he has been frequently tweeting in support of the ACLU, which is in the middle of multiple battles with Republicans over anti-LGBTQ bills.  

But beyond that, he's been relatively quiet on social media. Until Sunday that is. Page's shirtless photo sent social media into a mini-meltdown, with a six-pack and a smile that's hard to ignore. He simply captioned the photo: "Trans bb’s first swim trunks." 


'His smile is contagious'

"Elliot Page got top surgery AND he fucking got absolutely shredded and I have never felt so euphoric for a person I've never met before," tweeted one person. Another said, "Look at this dude. His smile is contagious." One person tweeted, "Elliot Page looks so happy in his new pic!!!! We love to see it. This is what we need to see more of and what the media rarely shows: trans joy and prosperity."




"I love Elliot page. He keeps lowkey and quiet, then boom: drops a shirtless pic on us out of nowhere on a random ass Monday like nbd Dudes like the community equivalent of a cousin that only shows up to family events every five years but always brings a bottle of patron," joked another. One user said, "Elliot Page in swim trunks with the BIGGEST freakin smile on his face is just the best thing." Another tweeted, "I kept seeing the photo of Elliot Page floating around and did not realize that's who it was. I love how happy he looks."




Page also received a bunch of date requests, but for now, it seems like the actor is quite comfortable being single and winning over the internet.
