The first trailer for Viceland’s Gaycation, which has Ellen Page traveling to different cities around the world exploring local LGBT culture, is finally here and it’s a wild ride. The 28-year-old actor made headlines last August when she went head-to-head with Ted Cruz at the Iowa State Fair — a confrontation that appears in the upcoming series.
That tense and emotional moment is only one of many for Page and her co-host/best friend Ian Daniel as they travel from the U.S. to Toyko, Rio De Janeiro, and Jamaica. In each episode, Page and Daniel (who is also gay) attempt to explore the ways in which different cultures deal with gender, sex, and sexuality by immersing themselves in the local LGBT community.
Filming the series proved to be a very personal and moving experience for Page, who found herself in front of the camera with no script to follow.
Gaycation will premiere on Viceland, Vice’s new TV network, Wednesday, March 2nd at 10PM.
