Ellen Page's new show Gaycation premieres tonight at 10 p.m. on Viceland.

In the show, the HRC supporter and her best friend Ian Daniel travel the globe exploring LGBT cultures and communities.

Page came out two years ago at HRC’s first annual Time to THRIVE conference. Since coming out, Page has frequently discussed the positive impact coming out has had on her life, emotionally sharing her personal journey towards love and acceptance on late night talk shows and in magazine interviews. She continues to share the positive impact on the show.

“I'm hoping that the show can help people see what it means to live in a society that is challenging to be part of because you’re a member of the (LGBT) community," she told USA Today.

In tonight’s episode, the pair travels to Japan.

“Tokyo and Kyoto were probably the most unique places I've ever visited, mainly because the way of life and culture feels so different than what I'm used in the U.S.,” Daniel told HRC.  “Tokyo was electric, charming, hip and historical at the same time, the sushi is life changing and the Ni-chome LGBTQ neighborhood has so many special, alluring, underground type hangouts. There was a rawness, innocence about the bars and the LGBTQ nightlife there that you don't really see in the U.S as much these days.” 

Don’t forget to tune in for the official premiere tonight, Wednesday, March 2 at 10 p.m. on Viceland.
