I first met Nico Tortorella in November 2016 at a recording studio in NYC to have a conversation for his podcast The Love Bomb, where he explores topics of love, sex, sexuality, and gender with his friends, exes and other inspiring people. He invited me on to talk more about a TV show I co-host and executive produce (along with the actress Ellen Page) called GAYCATION on VICELAND, which explores LGBTQ+ culture around the world.
