In a post on Instagram
, executive producer and host Ian Daniel shared his thoughts about being nominated for an Emmy:
"We feel truly honoured to be recognised and supported by the Television Academy. 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."
Ellen Page added on her own Instagram page:
"Thank you @televisionacad for recognising #gaycation with an Emmy nomination. Thank you to @viceland for the support. Love and gratitude to all the extraordinary, generous and courageous individuals who share their stories with us. Much much much love #lgbtq+ @ianjamesdaniel."
