Boston Gay Men's Chorus

Barbara Seidl
Season 09
About this non-profit:

This is the story of a few men in Boston who started a small singing group for the simple joy of bringing friends together and singing some old familiar songs. They soon realized that they would need to risk their very lives to be allowed to sing together. They would face protests and picketing because, by the simple act of singing, they were breaking rules and breaking stereotypes. They were changing how the world saw them and how they saw themselves. With every new member who joined and with every concert they sang, they were changing more lives. Twenty years later, that small singing group is now nearly 200 strong and one of the most celebrated group of musicians in Boston-this is the Boston Gay Men's Chorus.
