In response to a wave of discriminatory anti-LGBTQ laws (similar to Australia's proposed religious discrimination legislation) and in response to the divisive 2016 election, the San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus embarks 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 brings a message of music, love and acceptance, to communities and individuals confronting intolerance. Over 300 singers traveled from Mississippi to Tennessee through the Carolinas and over the bridge in Selma, performing in churches, community centres and concert halls in hopes of uniting us in a time of difference. The journey also challenges Tim and other Chorus members who fled the South to confront their own fears, pain and prejudices, on a journey towards reconciliation. What emerges is a less divided America, where the lines that divide —faith, politics, sexual identity—are erased through the soaring power of music, humanity and a little drag.
