Evangelical Christians and drag queens collide in the southern, Arkansas town of Eureka Springs, home to both a massive amphitheatre performing the Passion Play every year and a local gay bar with a tradition of gospel-inspired drag. Despite chasms in political and religious viewpoints, the townspeople are universally charming and warm, even whilst battling over a historic vote on an anti-discrimination ordinance. The Gospel of Eureka takes a personal and often comical look at negotiating differences between religion and belief through performance, political action, and partnership. Narrated by artist and performer, Mx Justin Vivian Bond.
