KNOXVILLE (WATE) – The Gay Men’s Chorus of Washington traveled to Knoxville over the weekend to perform at Knoxville PrideFest, as part of their Southern Equality Tour.

After their performance, they were traveling to their hotel when they noticed protestors on the side of the road. That’s when they decided to confront the protesters.

Dan Kaufman filmed the confrontation.

The video shows members of the choir circling the protesters and singing “Make Them Hear You” from the musical “Ragtime.”
