“I feel like it’s one of those things where it’s so unfortunate because it’s like, we’re all on the same team here, you know, whether you’re trans … gender-nonconforming, cis,” Page, a 35-year-old biological female who identifies as male, said in a Tuesday interview.
“We all have these expectations and these sort of limits and constraints because of people’s obsession with the binary and how we’re all supposed to live our lives,” Page added.
While the negativity is saddening, the actor chooses to focus on how life has improved post-transition, Page said.
“What I want to focus on right now and has been so extraordinary is the degree of joy that I feel, the degree of presence that I feel,” Page added. “I feel a way that I really never thought possible.”
“It’s improved my life drastically,” Page said. “And I hope, you know, I hope maybe people who do have an issue with me can maybe try and hear that or embrace that on some level.”
