Synopsis

Every weekend, a group of gay men gather around the heart of Seoul, Korea, to sing. They are more like a bunch of amateurs than a harmonized choir, but they are voicing for equality and against discrimination towards sexual minorities in Korea. G-Voice is the one and only gay men's choir in South Korea. They are all amateur singers, but their passion paves its way to the 10th anniversary. With the big concert only a few days ahead, they are invited to perform at the very first gay wedding in Korea, where members are assaulted with fecal water by a homophobic group. However, 'give up' is not in G-Voice's dictionary, they keep singing for equality and against all kinds of discrimination. Will G-Voice's 10th anniversary concert succeed? This glossy music documentary sheds light on the gay men's hardship and joy in Korean society.

★IMDb 7.8 high rating!
★An all-male choir like no other in South Korea brings you the heavenly voice only sung for LGBTQ+ community.
