Portner also took to her Instagram to write, "I get to call this incredible woman MY WIFE! @ellenpage I LOVE YOU!"
Portner has appeared in photos and videos on Page's Instagram account since this past summer. Portner, originally from Ottawa, Ontario, is an instructor at the Broadway Dance Center, where she teaches contemporary jazz. According to her bio page, her performance and choreography appeared in Justin Bieber's "Life Is Worth Living" video.
Page came out as gay at the Human Rights Campaign's Time to Thrive conference in 2014. "I am tired of hiding and I am tired of lying by omission," Page told the audience at the time. "I suffered for years because I was scared to be out. My spirit suffered, my mental health suffered and my relationships suffered. And I'm standing here today, with all of you, on the other side of all that pain."
