What can we expect from Elliot Page's Oprah interview?
In the trailer about the conversation, Page explains why it was imperative to go public due to the backlash trans people are facing in society.
"I was expressing this to people in my life much before posting that letter, and telling people for the first time, and knowing I wanted a moment to become comfortable in myself and to be able to get to that point," the 34-year-old told Winfrey.
"For me, in this time we're in right now and especially with this horrible backlash we're seeing towards trans people, particularly trans youth, it really felt imperative to do so."
Page also became emotional when Oprah asked what has brought him the most joy about his transition.
He explained: "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...
"Just being in a T-shirt. It's being able to touch my chest and feel comfortable in my body for the, probably the first time. Tears of joy."
What has Elliot Page said about his Oprah interview?
Taking to his own Instagram page, Page wrote: "My feelings aren't really linear. I feel emerging joy and excitement one moment, and then in the next, profound sadness reading about people wanting to take gender-affirming healthcare away from children.
"I feel so grateful to be at this place in my life, and I want to use the strength I have to help in all the ways that I can. How can I feel grateful for my joy, and embrace my joy, and allow myself to have that joy - but then put that joy and that love into action?"
