In March 2018, Gay Men’s Chorus of Washington (GMCW) will embark on its second bus tour. They will take their Make America Gay Again concert on the road to spread a message of equality, dignity, and justice to ten cities over four days. They will partner with local churches, LGBTQ centers, and gay-straight alliances to raise awareness and much-needed funds, so these organizations can continue to do the vital work that they do. The goal of the Equality Tour is to bring people together and start conversations while spreading a message of equality through song.
Their Dayton appearance has been coordinated by Michael Knote of Have A Gay Day. He was contacted by the GMCW and they suggested doing a fundraiser here in the Dayton community. Michael was able to secure a venue and helped coordinate local LGBT group to promote the event. Proceeds from this “Concert for a Cause” will benefit The Greater Dayton LGBT Center, PFLAG Dayton, The Gatlyn Dame Group, and Have a Gay Dayton.
The concert will be held this Friday March 23 beginning at noon and lasting about an hour at St. John’s United Church of Christ, 515 E. Third Street in Dayton. The Washington D.C. chorus of about 100 will arrive in Dayton via three tour buses as a part of their “Equality Tour” in which they will visit 10 cities in four days to aid churches, LGBTQ Centers, and Gay Straight Alliances in raising funds for their respective local communities. Our local Dayton Gay Men’s Chorus will join the D.C. chorus in song.
