About Us

Our mission is, ”to lead by creating extraordinary music and experiences that build community, inspire activism, and foster compassion at home and around the world.” Founded in 1978, SFGMC sparked a nationwide LGBTQ choral movement after its first public performance at a vigil on the steps of City Hall following the assassinations of Supervisor Harvey Milk and Mayor George Moscone. Since then SFGMC has been embedded in the fabric of San Francisco. It has soothed souls in pain, lifted spirits in triumph, and has remained a steadfast beacon of hope. While SFGMC has performed in some of the world’s most revered opera houses, concert halls, and performing arts venues it has not had a permanent home in San Francisco until recently when SFGMC established the National LGBTQ Center for the Arts (Arts Center).
