The AMSGMC sprang to life in 2015, but the origin of the gay men’s chorus actually dates back to 1978. The first gay men’s chorus was set up by Jon Reed Sims in the Castro district of San Francisco. Its mission? To create change through music. Because music heals, enlightens and fosters unity. That vision of a world inspired and united by the music still holds true today and the global gay men’s chorus collective now boasts over 250 choruses worldwide. As part of this loving family, AMSGMC’s mission is to perform for the acceptance of the gay community in all its diversity – a diversity that’s reflected in the many talented singers and dancers of our chorus.
