Airbnb is known for offering home rentals around the world. Now, as part of a business strategy, the company is moving into entertainment.
The company made its big-screen debut Monday, with the premiere of a feature-length documentary, Gay Chorus Deep South, at New York’s Tribeca Film Festival.
The documentary follows the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus and their Lavender Pen Tour in 2017 which took the 300 members of the group through five states in the Deep South — an area of the country that tends to have a reputation for not being as tolerant of the LGBTQ community.
As they embarked on their bus tour through south they celebrated music, challenged intolerance and confronted their own dark coming out stories to embattle a resurgence of anti-LGBTQ laws.
The documentary is part of the company’s new push to create original travel content, including magazines, all intended to aid consumers.
Stars such as Antoni Porowski, Gus Kenworthy, Karamo Brown, Tyler Oakley and more, were on hand for the premiere of the film at the Tribeca Film Festival. See the photos below.
