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!

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)!!!

Ellen Page Opens Up On Her 'Toxic' Past In The Closet & What It Felt Like To Finally Come Out

Ellen Page is a whole new woman.

Following Ellen's cathartic coming out in February 2014, the actress has become an LGBT rights activist and even scored a girlfriend. While the tiny Canadian is way happier than she was in the past, she admitted life prior to her public revelation was extremely difficult.

The Juno star explained:

"I was just done. It's so toxic to just be hiding; it becomes so consuming without you even knowing it's consuming you. You become so complacent in this reality you create. It's like a bucket, and it's filling up and filling up and filling up — and finally it just spills over. And I felt guilty for not being out for the LGBT community. I was like, ‘Dude, just say you're gay.'"

Ugh, that life sounds SO difficult. We're just glad Page was able to find the courage to be herself!

The dog enthusiast added:

"For me, it was a great opportunity to be honest, to share certain elements of the pain that I went through. The reality is, there are very few young people out as actors, so I was hoping to speak to a lot of the issues so it wouldn't just seem like, 'Hey, look, I'm gay.'"

Hopefully Ellen paved the way for other actors and actresses to come out. Hollywood could use a little more honesty!

Elaborating on earlier fears that her sexuality would hinder her career, the actress revealed:

"If someone was like, ‘Hey, you're never going to be in a movie ever again', I would have done it anyway."

Woot! What an amazing attitude — you can't put a price on freedom!

Congrats on doing you, girl!
