CGMC's vision: Voices Raised, Lives Changed; fostering increased recognition, understanding, and acceptance of gay men, lesbian, bisexual, transgender persons through community outreach with music as the vehicle.
Founded in 1990, the Columbus Gay Men's Chorus (CGMC) was formed to produce vocal music of the highest quality in the rich tradition of men's choral singing. The Chorus unites as a gay men's chorus to rehearse and work in an atmosphere of camaraderie and support; secondly, to perform publicly before general audiences, thus fostering increased recognition, understanding, and acceptance of gays, lesbians, bisexuals, and transgender people in society. Although the Chorus operates within the constraints of its art form, i.e., a men's singing group, the Chorus is open to all individuals regardless of race, gender, color, religion, national origin, disability, age, gender identity or sexual orientation. Currently CGMC has more than 90 active singing members and more the 100 volunteers that assist with performances and day-to-day operations.
