This is more powerful than we ever could have expected!
When Vice announced they were parlaying their Internet media empire into a television network, we had a feeling the programs were going to be very informative.
However, thanks to an early viewing of Ellen Page's Gaycation, it's looking like Viceland is setting itself up to be can't-miss TV!
Video: Ellen Talks To Stephen Colbert About LGBT Rights!
The docu-series follows the Freeheld star and cohost Ian Daniel as they travel the world meeting different members of foreign LGBT communities, and in episode one, the pair visits the smallest gay bar in the world in Tokyo, Japan.
However, their trip is no vacation because along the way, Ellen and Ian find out just how hard it is to come out in Asia after witnessing an unaccepting mother's disapproval right in front of them!
It's a deeply emotional 44 minutes, and we applaud the show on furthering the conversation on LGBT equality across the globe.
Ch-ch-check out the full first episode of Gaycation ahead of its official premiere Wednesday, March 2 at 10 p.m. EST on Viceland (below)!!!
