Ellen Page To Interview Cop Who Claims To Kill Gay People For Her New ‘Gaycation’ Series

Ellen Page’s new doc-series Gaycation premiers on Viceland next month.

In the show Page explores LGBT life all around the world, and has her confronting a variety of people about their anti-gay views.


The scariest one interviewee has to be a Brazilian who says that he has killed those who were gay.

Talking at on the Viceland Panel for the 2016 Television Critics Association winter press tour, Page said.

It was probably one of the more scary, nerve-wracking moments I’ve had.”

A clip from Gaycation shows Page asking Ian Daniel (her best friend and documentary partner), “I want to say I’m gay, do you think it’s safe?” Daniel said that hearing the cop say stuff like “I’ve killed people like you” and “I’m going to do it again” as “hard to hear.”


Since coming out on Valentine’s Day 2014, Page has been a champion for LGBT rights.

Also, in Freeheld (the movie that inspired her to come out), she and Julianne Moore play a lesbian couple fighting for spousal benefits after one of them is diagnosed with terminal cancer.

Last year, Page confronted politican Ted Cruz at the Iowa State Fair for supporting LGBT discrimination on religious grounds.


That incident will also air on Gaycation.

Ellen Page’s ‘Gaycation’ Set To Air Early Next Year

This week Spectrum reported that they had brokered a deal with A+E Networks to produce Viceland, a new TV channel.

The announcement came with the news that the under-the-radar, LGBT docu-series Gaycation with Ellen Page, which has been loosely talked about since the actress busted Ted Cruz’s chops over a grill in Iowa this summer, could air as soon as February 2016.

In Gaycation, Page travelled the world to speak with friends and foes of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights.

And now we have a little preview of what that show will look like.


On Wednesday, Vice debuted a preview compilation of Viceland on their YouTube account.

The show has been describe as something similar to CNN’s Original Series or Fusion’s Unreported World,

… [an] edgy, immersive dives into cultural and sociological anomalies, produced in engaging, informative and entertaining ways.”

Viceland will replace H2 early next year on cable and satellite TV.
