Southern Baptist Sissies is based on the play of the same name by Del Shores, who won a GLAAD Award for his portrait of four boys wrestling with their gayness in the conservative South.

Boasting stellar performances from familiar names like Leslie Jordan (Will & Grace), Dale Dickey (Winter’s Bone), and Willam Belli (RuPaul’s Drag Race), Sissies is a sobering look at the hypocrisy within the Southern Baptist faith and the harm ensues when religion is used as a weapon against love.

The film had its world premiere last week in Palm Springs at the Camelot Theatres, and will open in Los Angeles on March 7.
