Ok, it may be a stereotype but we know that gay men often love to sing!
But if you are new to Orlando, or are someone who is looking to relocate to the area, how do you know what opportunities there are in Orlando for you to hear some singing or get involved?
Well, as Orlando is such an entertainment heavy town – with Disney and Universal for starters! It naturally means that it is home to an organization like the Orlando Gay Chorus!
Founded back in February 1990 and part of Gala Choruses, this great organization lives by its motto: “Inspiring individuals, the community and the world through excellence in musical entertainment.” The 100+ strong chorus is comprised of gay, straight, bisexual, and transgender individuals, who believe that their music can affirm and change the lives of those who hear them. The pride themselves in being a humanitarian organization too that helps change the image and attitudes that many LGBT individuals run into and are through their music working on making the world a friendlier place, one person at a time!
Looking ahead to their 22nd season, the Orlando Gay Chorus is funded by United Arts of Central Florida and has prospered over the years and has covered so many different musical genres, as they say themselves they do “classical to camp…and patriotic to pop” they have been part of 60+ major productions and have performed at over 160 benefit and outreach performances since their inception. The chorus has performed locally, state-wide, nationally and internationally before audiences of up to 20,000 people!
Definitely keep an eye on upcoming concerts they are working on if you want to hear them, or if you can sing, consider joining them by auditioning!
The Orlando Gay Chorus is just one local community organization in Orlando which shows how friendly the city is to LGBT individuals, don’t forget as we wrote about just recently, The Advocate named Orlando as the 2nd Gayest City in the country!
With Orlando being such a great place to live and having a very welcoming LGBT community and many friendly neighborhoods, the metro Orlando area is the perfect relocation destination.
