San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus

San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus

In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. and in remembrance of those we’ve lost to injustice and brutality, we present the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus premiere of "HEAVY".

In response to the shooting of George Floyd, McKenzie Coleman chose to express her anger and frustration in a poem. McKenzie identifies as a queer Black woman and is an elementary school music teacher in Charlotte, NC. She sent the poem to a colleague and friend, Dr. Gerald Gurss. He knew it had to be set to music.

He selected GALA Choruses legacy member Steve Milloy to compose the piece. Steve, a Black composer, has written songs expressing the black experience for decades. Steve set McKenzie’s lyrics to music and the introspective, illuminating "HEAVY" was born.

In addition to the San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus, other choruses across the country signed on to co-commission this work: Twin Cities Gay Men's Chorus, The Gay Men's Chorus of Washington, D.C., Gay Men's Chorus of Charlotte, N.C., Austin Gay Men's Chorus, Columbus Gay Men's Chorus, Buffalo Gay Men's Chorus, Heartland Men's Chorus, K.C., Boston Gay Men's Chorus, New York City Gay Men's Chorus, and Turtle Creek Chorale, Dallas.

For this Virtual Choir video, singers from all of the above choruses came together to contribute. There are over 300 singers in the video.

Hi there! We are looking for LGBTQIA+ individuals to participate in a research study to improve our current understanding of their valuable life experiences! In particular, we are interested to know more about what it’s like for LGBTQIA+ people to hide their gender identity and/or sexual orientation. Being “closeted” or “in the closet” is common among LGBTQIA+ individuals and can impact who they are, so we are also interested in how these experiences are related to current well-being. We need participants who identify broadly as LGBTQIA+, are at least 18 years old, and reside in the United States. As part of your participation, you will be asked to fill out an anonymous, online questionnaire (https://umt.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_esboO7M7McLFWtL) to tell us about your experiences. The survey should take between 25-50 minutes to complete. Your participation is completely voluntary, and you can leave the survey at any time. Those accessing the survey will have the chance to enter a drawing to win one of 10 $20 gift cards to Amazon.com! PARTICIPATE HERE: https://umt.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_esboO7M7McLFWtL Thanks so much!
Bob Minor: "There are many who can’t be as open about the syndrome as Michelle Obama. But that doesn’t mean that it isn’t there in the depths not just of women but of anyone who was taught by their culture that their race, sexual orientation, gender, economic status, able-bodiedness, etc. is somehow lesser and not the 'norm' of a culture that has thrived on oppression."

Are you passionate about social justice? Would you like to become a more effective ally who actively resists the oppression of LGBTQ folks in everyday encounters? Are you motivated to disrupt the bigotry that is endorsed in our current political climate and facilitate positive cultural shifts? If so, don't miss this free upcoming training! “Beyond Acceptance: Empowering LGBTQ allies to unpack microaggressions, disrupt implicit bias, and facilitate interpersonal healing.” Explicit attitudes of acceptance towards LGBTQ people have been steadily increasing over time. However, our community continues to endure marginalization through implicit bias which is invisible and expressed through daily interpersonal interactions. These microaggressions cause personal harm, perpetuate minority stress, and reinforce stigma. It is essential for allies to actively challenge and transform implicit bias that is expressed within interpersonal interactions so that restorative, affirmative, and equitable experiences are created for our community. Disrupting bias may not be easy, but is well worth the result of enhanced well-being, improved interpersonal relationships, and productive cultural shifts. This training will help you gain confidence in taking direct actions of solidarity that will help resist oppression, redistribute privilege, and support social justice. LEARNING OBJECTIVES: * Define implicit bias and microaggressions. * Make invisible perspectives visible: Recognize and identify cultural specific microaggressions and the implicit bias they express. * Understand detrimental impacts, harm caused, and psychological dilemmas. * Review common LGBTQ microaggression themes. * Recognize microaggressions as the active manifestation of implicit bias and cultural oppression. * Review and practice action steps to unpack microaggressions and disrupt implicit bias through self-monitoring and accountability. * Identify personal barriers to taking action, and review ways to overcome. * Explore personal action plan to integrate microresistance into daily life. Cost: Free of charge Date: October 20th 2018 Time: 3:00-6:10pm Location: Oakland LGBTQ Center, 3207 Lakeshore Ave, Oakland CA 94610 Space Limited - Please register at: https://chelseademartemft.com/trainings/
