Proclaiming the true colors behind one’s gender always requires a valor beyond measure. Elliot Page, soon after his revelation of his identity as a transgender has been at the center of debate for over the past few months. Amidst the joy of celebrating his identity as a transgender he is now facing a challenging married life it seems. The marriage bond between Page and Portner is at the cusp of split!
Soon after the eponymous self declaration, Page’s wife Portner had his back and as a form of supporting the identity of the partner she came forward with a campaign for the entire trans community, spreading her idea of the basic trans etiquette that everyone should follow.
As soon as Elliot page said that his pronouns are him/they in a heartfelt open letter posted on his social channels, his better half Emma Portner came up with a reminder of how you should treat the trans community through her Twitter post.
“I am so proud of @elliotpage,” Portner wrote in an Instagram post.
“Trans, queer and non-binary people are a gift to this world,” she added.
She then asked for “patience & privacy” as well as asking that her followers join her in the “fervent support of trans life every single day”.
