Elliot Page is ready for summer.

On Wednesday, the "Umbrella Academy" star took to Instagram to share a selfie paired with a note on feeling "grateful" to finally sunbathe without hiding under "sweaty" layers thanks to gender-affirming care.

"Dysphoria used to be especially rife in the summer," Page penned in the caption.

He explained in past summers, he was restricted by "layers" of clothing, "constantly looking down, readjusting my oversized T."

The 36-year-old Halifax-native expressed his gratitude and joy.

"It feels so f—ing good soaking in the sun now," the "Juno" actor continued. "I never thought I could experience this — the joy I feel in my body."

"I am so grateful for what gender-affirming care has allowed me and I look forward to sharing more of my journey soon," he concluded.

In the comments, fans showed their support for the actor's "trans joy."

"We love to see some trans joy," one Instagram user wrote.

Another commented: "This is amazing!"

"So happy for you and the light you are spreading. Everyone deserves joy and to live as their authentic self and to feel at home in their body. Congrats," a fan shared.

"Glad you feel so good," someone chimed in, while another added, "So deserved," alongside a heart emoji.

The actor came out as trans back in 2020. He shared the news with his Instagram followers in an emotional open letter and in March 2021, he revealed to Time he had undergone top surgery.

Last July, Page shared his first passport photo since transitioning, calling it the first passport photo of himself he liked.

"Never thought I would love a passport photo," he captioned the snap.

His post was quickly met with celebratory comments for his milestone moment.

"Handsome! Thank you for fighting for trans rights. It keeps us all safe," one Instagram user penned, while another commenter added, "Love this passport photo. King."

"I remember seeing my first passport photo after transitioning and feeling so happy. Congrats buddy!," someone else wrote.

"So happy for you!," another shared.
