For 33 years, the Gateway Men's Chorus has provided a vital service to the LGBTQIA+ community of St. Louis. By creating a safe space for LGBTQIA+ identifying individuals to come together and create music, we have helped establish lifelong friendships, allowed our singers to reconnect with their musical selves, and saved lives. Including my own.
Every Monday, we host a rehearsal for our singers. While we are busy preparing music for concerts, we are also creates bonds within the community and giving people purpose and obligation to keep them moving forward, even when the dark times might seem overwhelming. Music is the gateway to family, friends, and lasting impact upon a community that experiences enormous setbacks every day with housing, employment, and social acceptance. Together, we can change all that.
Please consider making a donation to help us further our mission of affirming and promoting gay culture and acceptance. Your support of our efforts helps put music in our hands, helps us to pay for venues, and helps us to keep our concerts affordable and accessible to all. We simply cannot do what we do -- without you.
