In response to a wave of discriminatory anti-LGBTQ laws and the divisive 2016 election, the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus embarks on a tour of the American Deep South.

The tour brings a message of music, love and acceptance to communities and individuals confronting intolerance.

Over 300 singers travelled to Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, South Carolina and North Carolina. They performed in churches, community centres and concert halls in hopes of uniting us in a time of difference.

The journey also challenges Chorus members who 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 things that divide —faith, politics, sexual identity—are set aside by the soaring power of music, humanity, and a little drag.

“To heal the country and move on, we must reach across the divide and listen to one another…But the big surprise of the film is how its progressive-minded main characters…do most of the growing here.”


“…engaging and colourful…the film [signals] that hope and humanity can prevail, even in the darkest of times.”


Doors 1.45pm | Unreserved Seating
