Elliot Page deserves a big thank you from the world. Actually, he deserves multiple thank you’s, all for a single photo he shared on his Instagram Story this weekend.
The 34-year-old actor shared a shirtless mirror selfie Friday that gave the world a great look at the confidence trans people can enjoy when they’re given the opportunity to live their truth (thank you) and a great look at what a living embodiment of the fire emoji looks like (Thank. You.).
Take a nice long pause to put your eyes on the perfection of Elliot’s shirtless mirror selfie below:
This isn’t the first shirtless pic the actor has shared since undergoing top surgery last year. In May, he shared a poolside pic to his Insta grid that was, dare we say it, positively ab-tastic.
“Trans bb’s first swim trunks #transjoy #transisbeautiful,” Elliot captioned the picture.

The actor has been very open about his gender transition since coming out in December 2020. In March, Elliot opened up about his decision to get top surgery during a March interview with Time, explaining that the procedure made it possible for him to “finally recognize himself when he looks in the mirror.”
“It has completely transformed my life,” he said.
In April, Elliot discussed his reasons for discussing the surgery so openly during an interview with Oprah Winfrey for Apple TV+’s The Oprah Conversation and his explanation serves as a succinct master class on why we should be talking so much more about trans health issues.
“I wanted to talk about it for a couple of reasons. I wanted to share with people just how much it has changed my life,” Elliot explained (per People). “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. 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.”
We said it before but you really can’t say it too many times: Thank. You. Elliot. Page.
