Gateway Men's Chorus
Mission Statement: Because music moves hearts and minds, we sing to affirm the gay experience and promote a culture of diversity and acceptance.
Organization History: Gateway Men's Chorus has been performing for the St. Louis Metropolitan area since 1988. Starting with 22 singers at its inaugural performance, the chorus has grown to approximately 70 singing members.
