VICE has released the first trailer for VICELAND’s »Gaycation«, which has Ellen Page and co-host Ian Daniel travelling from Japan to Brazil, Jamaica and back to the USA. In each episode, the duo explores the ways in which different cultures deal with gender, sex, and sexuality by immersing themselves in the local LGBT community. Filming the series was a new experience, one that proved to be very personal and moving, for the Canadian actress, who found herself in front of the camera with no script to follow. In a recent telephone interview with BuzzFeed News, Page and Daniel both recapped some of the emotional moments during the production:
“I think I expected to definitely have emotional experiences, I don’t know if I would have anticipated … I don’t think you can anticipate the actual degree of what you’re going to feel,” said Page of the eye-opening experience. “I’m a privileged person. I’m a privileged gay person. [The show] helped me understand, even more so, how much more vulnerable people are.” Daniel added: “Each episode you’re learning so much. It’s these one-on-one interactions that are so rare, that you don’t have in your everyday life, so you come out of each episode expanding each time.”
