‘Pride: Then, Now, and Forever’ GMCSF

After losing nearly a whole generation to the AIDS crisis, the LGBTQ community comprises more generations existing together than ever before. Embrace the vibrant tapestry of our history and future in a multigenerational concert celebration! From the resilient spirit of Baby Boomers to the trailblazing energy of Generation Z and beyond, this event weaves together decades of music, stories, and voices. Experience the anthems that have resonated in past Pride parades, such as "It's Raining Men," "Dancing Queen," and "Y.M.C.A." Alongside beats from songs such as "Believe" and "Proud" that echo the dreams of a new generation, the concert isn't just a showcase of melodies but a heartfelt tribute to diverse journeys, shared struggles, and the boundless joy of the LGBTQ community. The concert also includes the world premiere of "We've Come Through The Storm," by Tom Nichols and Dan Chadburn, and "Don't Say Gay," a jaunty yet robust show-stopping number crafted exclusively for GMCSF by composer David Volpe.
