With LGBTQ cinema becoming increasingly prominent these days, it seems unsurprising that the music business is now making a similarly big splash. Examining the queer music genre and its growing presence in the entertainment industry, award-winning filmmaker Sean Robinson now brings “For Which We Stand,” a documentary feature film produced for OUTmusic and the LGBTQ Academy of Recording Arts.
The film will feature live performances from the OUTmusic Awards with behind the scenes footage, as well as interviews with pioneers, recording artists, activists, industry executives and various creative industry professionals, including musical icons such as Dolly Parton, Melissa Etheridge and transgender opera singer Tona Brown, among many others. “I’m very excited to be directing this socially and politically pro-active feature-length documentary film, that will not only spotlight queer music culture, but will keep the torch of LARA burning, as the fight for equality moves forward into the next era,” states Robinson.
The film will be released in 2015. Check out the trailer below:
