Sordid Lives is the story of a young gay man working up to coming out to his eccentric Texas family at the funeral of the family matriarch.

The proceeds benefit the newly-formed Del Shores Foundation. The mission of the foundation is to find and facilitate the development of new Southern queer artistic voices by bringing artists together with working professionals, amplifying new work and connecting artists to platforms for the creation of the work.
