The Connecticut Gay Men’s Chorus
For over 30 years, the Connecticut Gay Men’s Chorus has served as a standard bearer for a powerful and accomplished mix of high-caliber performance, community activism, empowerment and inclusiveness, establishing it as an icon among Connecticut’s LGBT organizations. Founded in 1986, it was the first organization of its kind in the state and has been a proud member of the LGBT choral movement, which helped galvanize and change the course of LGBT history. It continues to rally and inspire other arts-based community organizations around New England. Under the leadership of Artistic Director Greg McMahan, the CTGMC has in recent seasons established a heightened level of performance standards receiving audience and critical acclaim, increased its profile, and broadened its impact and reputation in the community while maintaining its signature blend of humor, personality and high-voltage performances.

The CTGMC is unique in that it is both a choral arts organization and a social change agent. The chorus performs at, as well as supports, an ever-increasing number of community outreach organizations to raise funds and awareness of social and LGBT programs. They aim to portray the very best of the gay community in an authentic way. And, to further their mission of building bridges between the gay community and the community at large, they now welcome men of all orientations to join us in song and fellowship.
Thanks to their successful monthly fundraiser Bingomania and their family of donors and sponsors, they are not only committed to keeping their ticket prices affordable, but they are able to set aside 10% of their tickets to offer to LGBT youth, AIDS outreach, and other social outreach programs at no cost.
