Umbrella Academy’s Elliot Page Describes the Joy He Felt Wearing a Suit to the Oscars

The Umbrella Academy star Elliot Page discusses how seeing himself wearing a suit at the Academy Awards is his personal definition of “trans joy.”

Elliot Page of the umbrella academy described the experience of wearing a suit to the 94th Academy Awards.

In an interview with Trans Week, Page was asked about what his definition of “trans joy” was. “Just simply that I can feel present in a space without the incessant, underlying anxiety,” I answered. “And the ability to just sit with myself and be present…it gives me so much more space in my mind, in my imagination…the feeling for me is this arises from an ability to be connected with who you are that allows for presence that I’ve not gotten to feel before.” He added “In more specific ways, it’s wearing a suit last night [at the Oscars]. All those things are really special, wonderful, joyful moments where you’re looking at a photograph and it’s really cool to see yourself for the first time — or the person you already saw but here they are, like, they’re finally emerging. “
