Opening Night: GAY CHORUS DEEP SOUTH

Co-Presented with Wicked Queer and Spirit Magazine

To confront a resurgence of faith-based, anti-LGBTQ laws brought about in the Trump era, conductor Tim Seelig leads 300 singers of the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus on a bus tour of the deep South. The road trip forces Seelig and other Chorus members who fled the South to confront their own fears, pain, and prejudices on a journey toward reconciliation. In a time of great divide in this country, director David Charles Rodrigues reveals a timely exploration of LGBT issues that both challenges and reinforces notions surrounding the South.
