Out Loud

Availability ended EDT
Dir. Gail Willumsen / USA / 53 Minutes
Follow the ups and downs of the first season of the Trans Chorus of Los Angeles — the largest group of transgender and gender nonconforming people anywhere in the world who regularly sing together. Led by Lindsey Deaton, who co-founded the chorus and served as its first artistic director, these young choristers, some of whom have never sang as part of a group before, collaborate to hone their craft and find their voices individually, as their vocal ranges change during transition, and in harmony with each other. The stakes are high as they prepare for their 2016 history-making public concert debut in this inspiring story of an extraordinary choir.
