Chelsea Handler welcomed Oscar-nominated actress Ellen Page, national treasure Florence Henderson and Handler's second-grade teacher Mrs. Schectman to her Netflix talker Chelsea to talk about Page's docuseries Gaycation.

In the process, the women took time out to speak on the tragedy in Orlando, which Page—always so focused and fearless since coming out—framed correctly as yet another assault on LGBT people:
