Gay Chorus Deep South
About Gay Chorus Deep South:
MTV Documentary Films’ Gay Chorus Deep South, a timely and inspiring celebration of hope, acceptance and love directed by David Charles Rodrigues and produced by Bud Johnston and Jesse Moss, will make its broadcast premiere Sunday, December 20 at 9:00PM ET/PT on Pop, Logo and Pluto TV.
The critically-acclaimedfilm, which marks Rodrigues’ feature documentary debut, 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 laws and the divisive 2016 election.
Led by Gay Chorus Conductor Dr. Tim Seelig and joined by The Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir; the tour brings a message of music, love and acceptance to communities and individuals confronting intolerance. The conversations and connections that emerge offer a glimpse of a less divided America, where the things that divide us—faith, politics, sexual identity—are set aside by the soaring power of music, humanity and a little drag. Gay Chorus Deep South made its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival, where it won the Documentary Audience Award.
