Gaycation would not be possible without the amazing team at Viceland who work tirelessly to ensure this show represents the integrity, perseverance, and vibrancy of the LGBTQ+ community.

“We most importantly want to thank LGBTQ+ people around the world for their strength and bravery in sharing their stories, who at times risked their lives to speak their truth.

“This show would not exist without your courage and love. We hope the show helps educate and shift perspectives on the discrimination people face around the world, how people persevere and love in the face of that, and how we can all work at opening our hearts and minds to others’ experiences globally. Thank you for all your support.”
