Elliot Page’s spouse Emma Portner has come out in support of the actor after he wrote a letter on social media, identifying himself as transgender.

Page, formerly known as Ellen, wrote, “I want to share with you I am trans, my pronouns are he/they and my name is Elliot.” Celebrities and the trans community have since then expressed support and encouragement on social media.

Sharing Page’s letter on Instagram, Portner wrote, “I am so proud of Elliot Page. Trans, queer and non-binary people are a gift to this world. I also ask for patience & privacy but that you join me in the fervent support of trans life every single day. Elliot’s existence is a gift in and of itself. Shine on sweet E. Love you so much.”
