A beautiful, touching exploration of the global LGBT experience.
8 March 2016 | by circusboynathanielSee all my reviews

This show offers a beautiful, intimate look into the lives of LGBTQ+ people across cultures, addressing subcultures, discrimination, and issues that all LGBT people face in their lives. The hosts, Ellen Page and Ian Daniel share their own personal experiences as they venture through gay bars and clubs, discuss LGBT rights with politicians, and explore same-sex unions and coming out in various cultures. Their own friendship and care for each other is palpable and endearing. I would recommend this series to anyone who is not a homophobe (and sincerely hope that those homophobes who do watch this learn some acceptance through the experience).
