Gay Chorus Deep South: Digital Film Screening with post Q&A with Director David Charles Rodrigues


The Dougherty Arts Center is proud to host a special free digital screening of “Gay Chorus Deep South”, winner of the Tribeca Film Festival Audience Award, followed by a post screening Q&A with director David Charles Rodrigues. Registration is required to participate. In response to a wave of discriminatory anti-LGBTQ laws and 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. The conversations and connections that emerge offer a glimpse of a less divided 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. Meet director David Charles Rodrigues during our online Q&A post screening and dive deeper into the making of Gay Chorus Deep South on Tuesday, June 16 at 7pm.
