Emma Portner is "so proud" of Elliot Page.
The dancer and choreographer spoke out in support of her spouse after Elliot — who was formerly known as Ellen Page — came out as transgender.
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 (sic)"
Following Elliot's announcement, many in Hollywood supported him. Here are some of their reactions:
I've been a fan of Elliot's for a very long time and am excited to see him continue his fantastic work in the years to come. https://t.co/2KAdiCIyi4— Kumail Nanjiani (@kumailn) December 1, 2020

Elliot Page’s words here are so beautiful and so eloquent, and he is reminding me that we can all be brave and joyful, even when things are scary. And this year especially, that reminder is such a GIFT. Sending them love/praise/gratitude/well-wishes etc etc etc etc ❤️❤️❤️ https://t.co/BX6DRXHzmz— Anna Kendrick (@AnnaKendrick47) December 1, 2020
Congratulation, Elliot, in committing to the full expression of your self and being so open and candid about it. You have made this world a more tolerant and loving place with your commitment, courage, and vulnerability. We are lucky to have public figures like you.— Mark Ruffalo (@MarkRuffalo) December 2, 2020
