The Southern Circuit Tour of Filmmakers, presented by South Arts, brings new films from independent filmmakers to cinemas throughout the South — and welcomes directors and producers to Q&A sessions and discussions in conjunction with each screening.

In response to a wave of discriminatory anti-LGBTQ laws and the divisive 2016 election, the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus embarked on a tour of the American Deep South. Led by Gay Chorus Conductor Dr. Tim Seelig and joined by The Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir; the tour brought a message of music, love and acceptance to communities and individuals confronting intolerance.

Over 300 singers performed in churches, community centers and concert halls in hopes of uniting us in a time of difference. The conversations and connections that emerge offer a glimpse of a less torn 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.

Scheduled for Q&A/post-film discussion: Director David Charles Rodrigues and Dr. Timothy Seelig, Artistic Director of San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus
