Just in Time for the Vacations! Viewers Award Winner at the Tribeca Movie Pageant, Gay Chorus Deep South, delivers hope, acceptance and like to the tiny monitor. The critically-acclaimed film from MTV Documenatary Films tells the story of the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus as they embark on a tour of the American Deep South in response to a wave of discriminatory anti-LGBTQ lawsand the divisive 2016 election. The Movie Premieres Sunday, December 20th at 9PM ET/PT on Pop, Emblem and Pluto.
Led by Homosexual Chorus Conductor Dr. Tim Seelig and joined by The Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir the tour provides a message of tunes, like and acceptance to communities and people confronting intolerance. More than 300 singers travelled from Mississippi to Tennessee through the Carolinas and above the bridge in Selma. They executed in churches, local community facilities and live performance halls in hopes of uniting Americans in a time of variance. The journey also challenged Seelig and other Chorus members who fled the South to confront their very own fears, soreness and prejudices on a journey towards reconciliation. The conversations and connections that emerge provide a glimpse of a less divided America, in which the points that divide us—faith, politics, sexual identity—are set aside by the soaring ability of tunes, humanity and a small drag.
