- I don’t think it’s a new movement, it’s just a coalescing,” says Viceland’s Gaycation cohost Ian Daniel of the post-President Trump resistance that has seized the nation across identities, geographies, and communities. From immigration bans to the overturning of President Obama’s directive allowing transgender children to use the school bathrooms that correspond with their gender identity, Trump’s first 100 days in office have been a traumatic rollback of fundamental rights—but they’ve been met with powerful grassroots opposition at every turn.
The strength of these voices are the focus of “United We Stand,” a special Gaycation episode capturing the organization and activation that immediately followed Trump‘s Inauguration. Daniel and actress Ellen Page, both co-executive producers, best friends, and outspoken queer advocates, took their Emmy-nominated series to Washington D.C. and Indiana—capturing the initial backlash to the anti-immigrant, anti-women, and anti-LGBTQ administration as well as its immediate impact on the communities they’ve promised to antagonize.
