SFGMC Ensembles Performing
Fabulous & Forbidden Broadway
This hilarious and heart-stopping Broadway-themed concert is performed by the Chorus’ beloved HomoPhonics and The Lollipop Guild. You will delight in lush vocal arrangements of Broadway classics and contemporary favorites, including Les Misérables, The Lion King, Wicked, Avenue Q, Dear Evan Hansen, and many more. This production is the first time that the Tony Award-winning musical revue will be performed by a gay men’s chorus!
The San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus was one of the first of its kind, and was the first to include “gay” unapologetically in their name. Fighting against discrimination and bigotry while losing countless loved ones to the AIDS epidemic, the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus not only persevered themselves, but they inspired an LGBTQ+ choral movement worldwide.
Since the first 115 members sang on the steps of City Hall in 1978, over 2,000 different men, cis and trans, and non-binary people have sung with the chorus. Jon Reed Sims, who founded the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus, went on and founded a number of gay and lesbian choral and instrumental ensembles before his tragic untimely death from AIDS. In addition to releasing a number of recordings, the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus has been featured in several documentaries, including Singing Positive, which received an award from GLAAD in 1996, and Gay Chorus Deep South, which chronicled their “life-changing Lavender Pen Tour through five southern states in the fall of 2017.”
After over 40 years of performances and still going stronger than ever, the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus is itself a testament to the notion that “it gets better.” This is the untold story of the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus.
