GAY CHORUS DEEP SOUTH
Documentary, Drama, LGBTQIA, Music, Politics
To confront a resurgence of faith-based anti-LGBTQ laws brought about in the Trump era, Conductor Tim Seelig leads 300 singers of the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus on a bus tour of the deep south, showcasing fine music, confronting political and religious intolerance, and challenging his own troubled past with the church. Joined by the Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir, they bring a message of music, love, and acceptance to communities often on the frontlines against intolerance.
The roadtrip forces Seelig and a handful of other Chorus members who fled the south to confront their own fears, pain, and prejudices on a journey towards reconciliation.
In a time of great divide in this country, director David Charles reveals a timely, relevant, and musical exploration of LGBT issues that both challenges and reinforces notions surrounding the South.
