That's so gay!

Ellen Page has maintained her place in the public eye ever since she starred as the titular character in 2007's Juno, but according to the recently out star, she's only just begun to enjoy herself!

The 29-year-old stopped by SXSW on Saturday to promote her new Viceland docu-series Gaycation, and got a little emotional about the LGBT community both here in Hollywood and around the world.

This is more powerful than we ever could have expected!

When Vice announced they were parlaying their Internet media empire into a television network, we had a feeling the programs were going to be very informative.

However, thanks to an early viewing of Ellen Page's Gaycation, it's looking like Viceland is setting itself up to be can't-miss TV!

Video: Ellen Talks To Stephen Colbert About LGBT Rights!

The docu-series follows the Freeheld star and cohost Ian Daniel as they travel the world meeting different members of foreign LGBT communities, and in episode one, the pair visits the smallest gay bar in the world in Tokyo, Japan.

However, their trip is no vacation because along the way, Ellen and Ian find out just how hard it is to come out in Asia after witnessing an unaccepting mother's disapproval right in front of them!

It's a deeply emotional 44 minutes, and we applaud the show on furthering the conversation on LGBT equality across the globe.

Ch-ch-check out the full first episode of Gaycation ahead of its official premiere Wednesday, March 2 at 10 p.m. EST on Viceland (below)!!!

In the new issue of Marie Claire UK, the Oscar winner talks describes her 2015 film Freeheld, about a New Jersey police lieutenant who struggles to secure her pension for her same-sex partner — played by Ellen Page — after she is diagnosed with terminal cancer.

The film's subject matter allowed Julianne to talk frankly with her co-star about her own experiences, saying:

"Ellen was miserable. She talked to me very frankly about her own experience—what it felt like, about the nature of the discomfort. A lot of people I know came out a long time ago. None of my friends were celebrities when they came out; they were college students. So here I was talking to this very young woman, who had recently come out, about experiences that were very, very fresh, so it was a different kind of conversation."

The 55-year-old also addresses the ongoing fight for gay rights in America:

"I think it's easy for us in New York to say 'Oh, things are different' but they are not, people can still be discriminated against at work, or for housing. In some States they can be fired for being gay; they can be denied opportunities."

Last but not least, she takes on Hollywood's many, many problems:

"It's very difficult to find parts, no matter how old you are, no matter where you are and whether you're a man or a woman, the movie industry is not in the business of finding good roles for actors or actresses; it is in the business of creating films that will make as much money as possible."

Sad. But true.

We're just happy more big stars are discussing it.
