We’re Florida’s very 1st LGBTQ+ Arts Organization.

Our voices and yours are still very much needed.

Help The Fort Lauderdale Gay Men’s Chorus continue to thrive as the State of Florida’s first LGBTQ performing arts organization

On July 1st, Florida state enacted the 'Parental Rights in Education' bill, led by Governor Ron DeSantis.  It's known as the 'Don't Say Gay Bill.'

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

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.

His support of our Mission, his great personality, and his generous nature are truly missed every single day.

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)
