Ellen Page has had a busy start to her 2016. She’s currently at the Sundance Film Festival promoting “Tallulah” (read our review), and around the corner she’s got a new series launching on Viceland, and the first trailer has landed.
“Gaycation” finds Page and her best friend Ian Daniel putting themselves front and center, and exploring contemporary gay life around the world. They visit countries where gay rights are still in their infancy (if they exist at all), and talk with those whose very lives are in danger because of who they are. The overall tone feels like a mix between curious and concerned, and thankfully without the kind of sensationalism that gets attached to some Vice programming. Here’s the synopsis:
Ellen Page and her best friend, Ian Daniel, set off on a personal journey to explore LGBTQ cultures around the world. From Japan to Brazil, Jamaica and here in America, Ellen and Ian discover the multiplicity of LGBTQ experiences, meeting amazing people and hearing their deeply moving stories of struggle and triumph.
“Gaycation” debuts on March 2nd. Watch below.
