"I wanted to talk about it for a couple of reasons," Elliot told Oprah. "I wanted to share with people just how much it has changed my life. And I want people to know that not only has it been life-changing for me, I do believe it is life-saving — and it's the case for so many people."
In another clip from the interview, Elliot shared that it was the "little things" that had brought them the most joy since transitioning. "It's, you know, 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,'" he said, tearing up.
Elliot Page's interview on The Oprah Conversation begins streaming on Apple TV+ on Friday, April 30.
