Stephen Colbert: 'We're Living in a Golden Age of Being Gay' - VIDEO


Stephen Colbert took on the Defense of Marriage Act last night, eviscerating the arguments of the House Republicans' lead attorney Paul Clement in the process.

He also noted that our world becomes a little gayer every day: "These days the gays are accepted everywhere you go. They're like VISA cards. Only thinner."

Colbert also looks at the recent study that showed straight men are more stressed than gay men, and reveals the reason why.

  2. How gay-supportive can Colbert be, given his well-documented fear of bears? ;)

  3. I like Colbert is on our side. Thank you.
    And I agree the time is better than never for lgbt.
    BUT as reported here, so many (too many) young gays take their own lives that I wouldn't call this time golden for gays. The pressure is still on. First we need to help and support young lgbt people and then perhaps talk about golden age.

  4. Stephen Colbert, Jon Stewart, Bill Maher and Louis Black are all outstanding progressive comedic voices.

  7. Matt I think you missed the point, the "golden age of gays" was a joke.

  8. I love Stephen Colbert.

    I think my favorite part was his take on Fox News' claim that they've always supported gay rights, as Colbert said "at least since the beginning of this sentence." What utter horsesh*t!

  10. It's too bad he didn't include the whole alphabet soup.
