From the 1970s to now, this documentary delves into the country music careers of a group of LGBT women and one trans man as they fight to be true to themselves in an industry known for its sexism and homophobia, even today. Be outraged and inspired as these people overcome rampant discrimination at every turn, from being banned from radioplay to being abandoned en masse for writing a song about lesbian love and more.
 
With insights from country music icons including Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, Chely Wright, and a chance to get behind the scenes and witness a world of hidden figures unknown until now, Invisible: Gay Women in Southern Music is impactful and at times heartbreaking but also brimming with charisma and great country tunes – made all the better knowing they were created by queer songwriters.

Content Warning: Discussion about suicide ideation, homophobia and sexual assault
