In response to the recent presidential election and the voices of the so-called “silent majority,” SFGMC will pursue a “Red State Freedom Tour” in the summer of 2018.
While the exact itinerary has not been determined, it is our plan to go on a whistle-stop tour through those states where the LGBTQ community is struggling, and likely feeling even further marginalized after the election results. We hope our presence and our music will encourage our brothers and sisters, educate others and challenge those communities to think differently.
The tour will cap off our monumental 40th Season and commemorate how SFGMC launched the global LGBTQ choral movement in 1978. We can think of no better way to use our time, talent, resources and energy than to take our message through music to those who need it most. We, as a country, have a long road to travel, and we believe this tour is a step in the right direction that will build bridges of understanding, compassion, and empathy.
