Our Affirmation Statement
For 37 years, Twin Cities Gay Men’s Chorus has lived its mission of Gay Men Building Community through Music. We reaffirm the following:
Our vision for the future: we see a world that celebrates equality and inclusion, inspired to action through our music and the work of the greater LGBT choral movement.
Our history as an advocacy organization: we use music as our tool for enacting positive social change. We seek to build community and culture that values all of our inherent differences, secures our full participation and rights within society, and addresses oppression of other marginalized or socially excluded members of our community. We will be accepting of the many examples of diversity we find within our greater community, including racial, gender, sexual, politic and economic. We will ensure that everyone feels welcomed and loved in our presence.
Our commitment to our own: we will provide a safe and welcoming environment for gay men to form community through the performance of music. We strive to be welcoming of the very things that we advocate. We will be the most welcoming of hosts to all individuals who join our choral community.
And we reaffirm our mission of Gay Men Building Community Through Music, with the welcome help of friends and family.
