Ellen Page takes the cover of Malibu magazine’s April 2016 issue, on newsstands now.
Here’s what the 29-year-old actress had to share with the mag:
On making her documentary series Gaycation: “You want to have more LGBT stories represented, and obviously we’re seeing that shift, but of course we need more. A big part of making Gaycation, too, is being able to have the community represented and those stories told.”
On traveling around to make Gaycation: “So far we’ve been to Japan, Brazil, Jamaica and the United States. There have been so many different kinds of interesting, because the show is about the joys and the triumphs, or just the nightlife or the day-to-day life or what have you, but sadly it’s also about discrimination and the struggles that a lot of people face who are oppressed. So it’s hard, the word ‘interesting.’ We were able to film and be a part of the very first public sort of ‘Pride’ celebration in Jamaica, and I just can’t even begin to say how moved and honored I felt to be able to witness that and grateful to the people who allowed us to be there, because a lot of people didn’t want to be interviewed anonymously, or would drop out kind of last minute.”
