‘Gaycation Presents: Orlando’ Trailer: Ellen Page Co-Hosts Special Focused On Aftermath Of Florida Shooting

Page and Ian Daniel speak with a group of individuals affected by the single worst act of violence against the LGBTQ community.



On August 24, Ellen Page and Ian Daniel will take viewers on an emotional trip to Orlando, Florida in the Viceland special, “Gaycation Presents: Orlando.” Focused on the aftermath of the worst mass shooting in American history that took place at the gay nightclub Pulse, the duo spoke with a diverse group of individuals affected by the horrendous act of violence committed against the LGBTQ community.

“Losing so many at once, it’s almost impossible to deal with,” says a woman in the first trailer released. “Gaycation Presents: Orlando” includes one survivor’s harrowing story of escaping the night club and another’s day of burying one pair of friends. The special hopes to shed a glimmer of light and show that the seeds of love and recovery for Orlando are possible and that the strength of the community — LGBTQ and beyond — will persevere.
