PREVIEW: Elliot Page Discusses His Transition With Oprah

In his first TV interview since beginning his transition Elliot Page will speak with Oprah in an Apple TV+ exclusive. They discussed both the hardships and the joy that have come from Elliot's brave, trailblazing announcement.

Big Questions

Oprah isn't holding back in this interview.

In this clip, where we get a look at the questions being asked, she touches on Page's experience with depression and anxiety, trans lives, and what part of the transition has brought him the most joy. For that question, we have an answer, from another clip:

I"t's, you know, getting out of the shower and the towel is around your waist, and you're looking at yourself in the mirror and you're just like 'There I am,'" he said. "And I'm not having the moment where I'm panicked...It's being able to touch my chest and feel comfortable in my body probably for the first time", said Page, via CNN.

Elliot is an actor best known for his work in the film Juno and the Netflix smash hit The Umbrella Academy. He began his journey towards realizing his true self back in December of 2020, when he announced he was transgender via Instagram.

Since then, he's gotten top surgery that he described as life changing and life saving, appeared on the cover of Time, and now, he's sitting down with Oprah.

Elliot is on a roll, making trans people everywhere seen and heard, and he's not stopping anytime soon.
