Film “Gay Chorus Deep South” (VIDEO)

By Charlotte Robinson, December 15, 2020

The critically-acclaimed MTV Documentary Films’ “Gay Chorus Deep South” will premiere Sunday December 20th at 9P ET/PT on Pop, Logo & Pluto TV. This feature documentary directed by David Charles Rodrigues 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 & the divisive 2016 election. Rodrigues stated, "I was inspired by the Chorus's music & message as a start to heal America's divide." Led by Gay Chorus Conductor Dr. Tim Seelig & joined by The Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir the tour brings a message of music, love & acceptance to communities & individuals confronting intolerance. Over 300 singers travelled from Mississippi to Tennessee through the Carolinas & over the bridge in Selma. They performed in churches, community centers & concert halls in hopes of uniting Americans in a time of difference. Dr. Tim Seelig, San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus Conductor & Artistic Director concluded, “Our tour was a Herculean effort & we truly felt we made a significant impact across the south, never imagining it would have such an after-life! The fact that this amazing story of love & acceptance will now be shared with people across the globe is beyond our wildest dreams.” The journey also challenged Seelig & other Chorus members who fled the South to confront their own fears, pain & prejudices on a journey towards reconciliation. The conversations & 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 & a little drag.
