Elliot Page's wife has now shared a heartwarming message of support after the actor came out as transgender last night...

After his announcement last night, Elliot Page's wife has stepped forward with a heartwarming message...

And, in it, she had some strong words of support for her other half.

Now, Page rose to mainstream prominence from his native Canada in 2005 with the revenge thriller Hard Candy..

He was lavished with praise for his performance, even bagging the Austin Film Critics Association's Award for Best Actress.

Just 2 years later, he starred in a film we all know and love...

Juno, of course!

The indie flick saw Page received an Academy Award nomination among several other accolades.

His other notable roles include Kitty Pryde in the X-Men franchise, Christopher Nolan’s Inception, Whip It!, and Sony’s reboot of Flatliners.

Page has also made the crossover into production.

Producing and starring in flicks such as Tallulah and Freeheld. 

And last year...

He marked his directorial debut examining environmental racism faced by people of color, as per Variety.

Oh, and who can forget?

You may also recognize the star for his role in the Netflix smash hit The Umbrella Academy. 

Page is a prominent figure among LGBTQ+ fans.

And has long been an advocate for the community. But now, he has further enriched his legacy with an announcement made last night.

Page released a statement on social media, coming out as transgender.

In the deeply personal essay, he began: “Hi friends, I want to share with you that I am trans, my pronouns are he/they, and my name is Elliot. I feel lucky to be writing this. To be here."

"To have arrived at this place in my life. I feel overwhelming gratitude for the incredible people who have supported me along this journey."

"I can’t begin to express how remarkable it feels to finally love who I am enough to pursue my authentic self."

He continued:

"I’ve been endlessly inspired by so many in the trans community. Thank you for your courage, your generosity and ceaselessly working to make this world a more inclusive and compassionate place. I will offer whatever support I can and continue to strive for a more loving and equal society," he wrote.

“I love that I am trans. And I love that I am queer."

"And the more I hold myself close and fully embrace who I am, the more I dream, the more my heart grows and the more I thrive. To all the trans people who deal with harassment, self-loathing, abuse, and the threat of violence every day: I see you, I love you, and I will do everything I can to change this world for the better," Page continued.

He then asked for “patience" as he navigates his identity.

“My joy is real, but it is also fragile," he wrote “The truth is, despite feeling profoundly happy right now and knowing how much privilege I carry, I am also scared."

He also added this:

“I’m scared of the invasiveness, the hate, the ‘jokes’ and of violence. To be clear, I am not trying to dampen a moment that is joyous and one that I celebrate, but I want to address the full picture."

Page referred to at least forty trans people have been murdered in the US alone in 2020.

As well as directly addressing the likes of Donald Trump: “The political leaders who work to criminalize trans health care and deny our right to exist." “You have blood on your hands," he added.

He went into the issue in more detail:

“You unleash a fury of vile and demeaning rage that lands on the shoulders of the trans community, a community in which 40 percent of trans adults report attempting suicide. Enough is enough. You aren’t being cancelled, you are hurting people. I am one of those people and we don’t be silent in the face of your attacks."

Nick Adams, GLAAD’s Director of Transgender Media, has spoken out since Page released his heartfelt statement.

“Elliot Page has given us fantastic characters on-screen and has been an outspoken advocate for all LGBTQ people. He will now be an inspiration to countless trans and non-binary people. All transgender people deserve the chance to be ourselves and to be accepted for who we are. We celebrate the remarkable Elliot Page today."

And of course, fans have also be enoffering their support.

And now, their wife, Emma Portner has also written a heartfelt message for her spouse.

Portner, a dancer and choreographer, married Page back in 2018.

In an Instagram post wherein she shared Page's written statement, she wrote a caption in support of her spouse.

She said this: "I am so proud of @elliotpage. 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."

And she also added some advice at the end writing: "Shine on sweet E. Love you so much."

The post has since racked up over 79,000 likes since it was posted last night.
