They’re bringing heart to the heartland! Galvanized by the 2016 election and a resurgence of faith-based anti-LGBTQ laws, the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus sets out on a one-week, 25-performance tour through the Bible Belt. Though they know they can’t change an entire region in just seven days, they hope to use their musical talents to find common ground with the communities some members escaped from long ago. “We can sing, and we can love,” says artistic director Tim Seelig in this uplifting documentary, winner of the Audience Award at the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival.
Sponsored by Seattle Men’s Chorus and Seattle Women’s Chorus.
