Pride festivals are celebrated all over the world.

The world's first openly gay men's chorus performed for the first time in 1978 at an impromptu candlelight vigil to honor Harvey Milk, the gay San Francisco councilmember who had been assassinated. Since then, gay and lesbian choruses spread throughout America as the LGBTQ community faced oppression, discrimination and the HIV/AIDS epidemic.

Coming up, the history of the gay men’s chorus and its relationship with LGBTQ Pride.
