'Gaycation' is an outstanding documentary brought to us from the folks at Viceland, designed to explore the cultures around the world of the LGBTQ community, both publicly visible and behind-the-scenes. Hosted by Ellen Page and Ian Daniel, the two travel to countries such as Brazil, Japan and the Ukraine shedding light on the often misunderstood and frequently maligned LGBTQ community ~ which the program beautifully shows are people just trying to live authentic, but often difficult, lives.
'Gaycation' brings issues to light such as homophobia in Jamaica, the highest LGBTQ death rate in the world in Brazil, and the stigma that still exists in the Deep South.
Now in its second season, 'Gaycation' has been an amazing vehicle that has shed light on a community that has had some recent successes (such as the Supreme Court making gay marriage valid in all 50 states), but more-so the incredible ignorance and hate that still exists for these people throughout every corner of the world. Highly recommend.
