The First Trailer For Ellen Page’s “Gaycation” Is Finally Here, via Buzzfeed!

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.

Just dropped my tiny little King off to his Aunty Jessica’s house … Morpheus I miss you already 😿 but enough with the mushy bullshit I gotta get a flight to South Korea 🛫🎏🏮🎊✈️💺📽🏙🎉🎐🍙🍥 see you soon SK #graciedoessouthkorea #vice #idmagazine (at Seoul, South Korea)


This was our first big break in Iowa news.  I met up with Kyle Munson and his photographer when we were less than fifty towns deep in the project.  We ended up getting both a video feature on their website and were featured on the front page of the Des Moines Sunday Register newspaper.

This is the article that kickstarted the initial interest of Forgotten Iowa and pushed it into the public.  To date, it’s one of my proudest moments of my photographic career.

An interview where I actually got to sit and type out my responses.  Because of this, I think it’s the most eloquent piece I’ve done about the project.  My fingers are prettier than my mouth.

A very in-depth podcast with Corban Damukaitis where we talk about everything from Forgotten Iowa to music to life and back again.  It times out at nearly three hours, so you might have to check this one out in bits and pieces.  Corban drove all the way from Ohio to talk to me.

Definitely the coolest thing I’ve ever been a part of.  I’m incredibly proud of this video, from the first frame until the very last.  And, best of all, everybody that was a part of it was extremely cool.

A short, easy interview I did with the folks over at CNN.  Admittedly, this was the moment I felt like Forgotten Iowa had been legitimized.  Super proud of it.

A local news story in the town that I’m originally from.  This was a bucket list item for me and I was very happy to do it.
