Gay Chorus Deep South
In response to a wave of discriminatory anti-LGBTQ laws and the divisive 2016 presidential election, the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus embarks on a tour of the American South. The journey challenges the group of over 300 singers, many of whom fled the South, to confront their own fears, pain,and prejudices on a journey towards reconciliation. The conversations and connections that emerge offer a glimpse of a less divided America, where the things that separate us—religion, politics, sexual identity—are set aside by the power of music, humanity, and a little drag.
