The “Juno” actor uses he/she pronouns and announces his move with a Letter back then on social media.
“I feel lucky to write this. Be here. To have arrived at this place in my life,” he wrote. “I feel overwhelming gratitude for the incredible people who have supported me on this journey. I can’t express how remarkable it feels to finally love who I am enough to pursue my authentic self.”
“I love that I’m trans. And I love that I’m queer,” he continued in the note. “And the more I hold myself tightly and fully embrace who I am, the more I dream, the more my heart grows and the more I thrive.”
A few months later, the “X-Men” star showed off his toned physique with one shirtless snapshot. In the smiling photo, Page rocked red swim trunks and black sunglasses. “Trans bb’s first swim trunks,” he captioned the pic, adding the hashtags “#transjoy” and “#transisbeautiful.”
Page is working with Flatiron Books on his memoir Pageboy, due out in 2023. A statement from the publisher, released in February, provides this summary: “The memoir will explore Page’s relationship with his body … his experiences as one of the world’s most famous trans people and will cover mental health, assault, love, relationshipsSex and the sewer that Hollywood can be.”
