Emma Portner responds to transgender announcement on Twitter

Elliot Page posted to his Twitter account: “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.”

The Juno star wrote, “I love that I am trans. And I love that I am queer,” he also comments that coming out as transgender is a scary process.

“The statistics are staggering,” Elliot states. “The discrimination towards trans people is rife, insidious and cruel, resulting in horrific consequences. In 2020 alone it has been reported that at least 40 transgender people have been murdered, the majority of which were Black and Latinx women.”

Elliot has received a lot of love and support from fans worldwide but most importantly his wife Emma Portner. She commented a lovely message on his Instagram post writing: ‘Love you so much elliot.’

Emma also posted a copy of Elliot’s letter on her Instagram page. She wrote, “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. Shine on sweet E. Love you so much.”
