Ellen Page has marked Pride Month by sharing a topless picture of herself with wife Emma Portner.

The 32-year-old actor, best known for her titular role in 2007 film ‘Juno’, for which she won more than 20 awards, posted the intimate image, which depicts the pair having an intimate moment, on Sunday.

She captioned it: “HAPPY PRIDE!!!,” adding that she was “sending love”. The post has since garnered almost half a million likes.

Page first came out as gay in 2014.

During a speech at the Human Right Campaign’s “Time To Thrive” conference, she said she was tired of “lying by omission”.

"I'm here today because I am gay and because maybe I can make a difference, to help others have an easier and more hopeful time,” Page told the audience.
