We’re Florida’s very 1st LGBTQ+ Arts Organization, and we are still very much needed:

Our 35th Anniversary Concert, WHY WE SING, on Saturday May 7th was a huge success!

Thank you to our friends, family and special guests Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Mayor Dean Trantalis and Deborah Kerr for making it a glorious celebration.

“Don’t Say GAY” is one reason!
This March and April 2022, Florida state legislators passed the 'Parental Rights in Education' bill and it was signed into law by Governor Ron DeSantis. It's known as the 'Don't Say Gay Bill' and is set to take effect on July 1, 2022.

We at FTLGMC strongly oppose this new law and the targeting of LGBTQ students and families. Unfortunately, this is not the first time our community has been targeted in this state. 

We have stood up against this type of bullying and discrimination for 35 years.  We still do so by building and bringing together communities (instead of dividing them): with Music. 

This is truly Why We Sing! 

We invite you to join us on May 7th to stand with us in support of love and inclusion. Thank you for being part of our extended family and we look forward to seeing you on May 7th.

Remembering South Florida gay news:

NOVEMBER 2021 Fort Lauderdale, Florida “Our Time with Sondheim”:

Our Fort Lauderdale GayMen’s Chorus Family (and the whole world) were devastated to learn yesterday about the death of 91 year-old and Proudly Gay Musical Genius, Stephen Sondheim.

Back in March of 2018 (pre-COVID) we performed in concert: “Our Time With Sondheim” with special Broadway Guest Stars Lisa Vroman and Martha Bartz in downtown Fort Lauderdale, Broward County, South Florida.

We sang together then to celebrate & honor the life work of this brilliant and proudly out Gay Man. (#GayMen)
