The PGMC’s youth outreach program is central to the chorus’ mission. In 2014, the Philadelphia Gay Men’s Chorus partnered with community organizations to perform outreach concerts in local schools, fostering understanding and personal growth in our teenage audiences. Since then, we have reached over 9700 students at dozens of local high schools and universities. We continue to support the LGBTQ+ community and empower young people by providing them with an opportunity to enter into a safe and affirming environment free from the threat of harm regardless of how they self-identify.
Your support ensures continued…
for young people to celebrate diversity through music
Exposure to Role Models
of proud, happy, successful LGBTQA adults
in public space and civic events
A portion of all the money earned through our fundraising efforts supports our outreach program, including outreach concerts, complimentary concert tickets for LGBTQ+ youth, and smaller workshops and events that bring our members and LGBTQ+ youth together.
PGMC has been acknowledged for their outreach efforts, and most recently, was awarded the Delaware Valley Legacy Fund’s Non-Profit Hero Award.
