The actress stars in Netflix's Umbrella Academy, based on the Dark Horse comic book series of the same name by My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way and comic book artist Gabriel Ba, out Friday. Page told British news outlet The Independent in a profile published Friday that the media must stop framing things like marriage and discrimination as if there were two sides to every matter of LGBTQ+ rights.
"There is one side that is right, and there is one side that is wrong," Page told arts writer Alexandra Pollard. "Gay marriage... It's not a debate. Whether you have the religious right to fucking not serve a queer person or a trans person, that's not a debate. And the media needs to stop treating it like it's a debate."
"I've met people who have dealt with the most brutal fucking trauma because of the rhetoric and policies that are promoted by people in power," she said. "This is fucking life or death for people... It's life or death. And that's not an exaggeration."
