"Gay Chorus Deep South" Chronicles Journey of Music, Reconciliation

KCBS Radio In Depth
Thursday, November 14th
Two years ago the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus journeyed outside of San Francisco to tour the nation's southern states. Setting out in the wake of the divisive 2016 election, the group made a point of visiting states that had passed laws restricting the rights of LGBTQ people with the aim of confronting religious and political divides and building bridges through music.

That journey was chronicled in “Gay Chorus Deep South," a documentary film premiering in San Francisco this coming weekend. In this edition of KCBS In Depth we discuss the film and what it took to build those bridges. 

Guests: 
Tim Seelig, the artistic director and conductor of the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus
David Charles Rodrigues, the film's director 

Hosts: KCBS Radio reporter Keith Menconi and KCBS Radio entertainment reporter Jan Wahl 

Film showings: 

The film opens in San Francisco Friday November 22nd at the Roxie Theater where it will have a limited run. It’s also going to broadcast on MTV next year.
