Celebrities support Elliot Page after he comes out as transgender
Elliot Page revealed he underwent top surgery as part of his transgender journey.
“The Umbrella Academy” star said the surgery, which removes breast tissue to produce a more masculine appearance, was life-changing.
“It has completely transformed my life,” he told Time magazine in a cover story.
Page said the surgery doesn’t define being trans, but provided him with freedom from the “total hell” that was puberty and allowed him to finally recognize himself when he looks in the mirror.
The “Juno” star revealed he was recovering from the surgery when he came out as transgender in December.
“I feel lucky to be writing this. To be here. To have arrived at this place in my life,” Page, 34, wrote in his social media announcement. “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.”
His wife, Emma Portner, said she was “so proud” of Page for coming out and living authentically, but they’ve since decided to part ways; Page filed for divorce from Portner in January.
“After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce following our separation last summer,” the pair said in a joint statement. “We have the utmost respect for each other and remain close friends.”
The divorce came just three years after the pair married in January 2018.
Page and Portner — both Canadian-born — have been very public about their love for each other, including once posing topless and kissing each other in a June 2019 Instagram post captioned, “HAPPY PRIDE!!! Sending love.”
