1pm | Hartford Gay Men’s Chorus

In a special Sunday Pillow Pride performance, The Hartford Gay Men’s Chorus (HGMC) brings live choir to the Inside/Out stage. Celebrating their seventh season, the 60+ voice ensemble is celebrated for its musicianship, creative programming, and community outreach. HGMC sings a wide range of music as a catalyst for enriching and educating both participants and audiences by demonstrating to individuals the many ways that beautiful music positively impacts our world. | FREE

4:30pm | Film: Hot to Trot

This award-winning documentary film goes inside the fascinating but little-known world of same-sex competitive ballroom dance and follows a small international cast of four magnetic men and women, on and off the dance floor, over a four-year period. An immersive character study–and an idiosyncratic attack on bigotry–this rousing, powerful story unfurls with the rhythms and energy of dramatic cinema. Learn more. | $10
