The Gay Men's Chorus of Washington, DC sings to inspire equality and inclusion with musical performances and education promoting justice and dignity for all. We will celebrate the diverse tapestry of our great nation instead of shredding that tapestry. We will uplift and inspire queer youth rather than allowing them to be the victims of bullying. We will bring people together through the power of performance instead of isolating groups of people with fear. And as we recall the success of our Equality Tour, and plan our next one, we will take our message and music beyond the beltway to comfort, encourage, and inspire a broader activist audience.
