Page has posted numerous interpretive dance videos with Portner and the duo have sometimes shared cover songs together.

In 2014, Page came out as gay at a Human Rights Campaign event in a rousing speech that earned her a standing ovation. The actress said she was ready to come out in hopes that her experience would help other people struggling with their sexuality.

The actress previously dated artist Samantha Thomas.
