WATCH: Ellen Page Chats With Colbert About Freeheld, Coming Out, and Progress in the LGBT Community

"I think, for the most part, LGBT people started becoming more visible...The more people started living their lives... "

Ellen Page stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night, and amidst the relaxing tone and jokes about Canadian geography, she also had some pretty serious personal truths to share. Ellen was on the show to promote Freeheld – the true story of lesbian partners Laurel Hester and Stacie Andree fighting for equality after Laurel is diagnosed with cancer – and didn’t miss the opportunity to discuss the impact these women had on LGBT history. When Colbert and Ellen pointed out that the film’s events take place only ten years ago, Ellen eloquently explained why she believes LGBT progress took a substantial turn over the last few years.
