A new Viceland program is currently making headlines for its unique approach to the issue of LGBT travel. Titled 'Gaycation,' the program explores different cultures from the perspective of two young, influential members of the LGBT community.

Gaycation is a brand-new series hosted by actress Ellen Page and friend Ian Daniel. The show is similar to other travel documentaries in that it follows the two friends as they visit some of the most interesting places on earth. However, the show differs from other travel programs in that each location is approached from an LGBT perspective. As a result, the show provides unique insight into the treatment of the LGBT community in other parts of the world.

The new Viceland program is likely to appeal to both adventure seekers who enjoy travel-oriented documentaries, as well as those interested in LGBT issues. As Daniel explains, "you just want people that watch the show to feel more connected to other stories around the world."
