He previously described his top surgery – where breast tissue is removed – as life-saving.

Page captioned the post: “Trans bb’s first swim trunks.”

He added the hashtags #transjoy and #transisbeautiful.

Page, known for an Oscar-nominated role in 2007 coming-of-age drama Juno, sat down with Oprah Winfrey for her Apple TV+ show last month and said seeing himself with masculine features had brought him most joy since transitioning.

He said: “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, I’m not having all these little moments that used to be…
