F. GALA Choruses

We like to think that the BGMC is special, and we are. But we are not unique. GALA Choruses (Gay And Lesbian Association of Choruses, Inc.) formed in 1982, is an international 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization serving the GLBT choral movement, with a mission to support GLBT choruses and “to change our world through song.” We have been a proud member of GALA Choruses since our first season in 2001. A portion of your BGMC dues go to GALA Choruses in order to maintain our BGMC membership, as GALA Choruses supports itself through dues. GALA reports over 150 member choruses and 7,500 singers, with membership open to all GLBT and GLBT-allied choruses. Member choruses are located throughout North America, Europe, South America, Africa, and Australia, and range from 5 to 250 singers. Through workshops, festivals, networking, and administrative support, GALA Choruses fosters the continued artistic and organizational growth of its member choruses.
