Impact Summary from the Nonprofit As the only gay and lesbian choral group in east central Florida, we make a tremendous impact in the community. Our concerts always include messages of inclusion and promote a world free from prejudice. Thousands of people will be impacted by the music and the message of OGC in the next year. OGC recognizes its diversity and builds on the strength each individual has to contribute. According to Population Today, Orlando is shown as one of the top ten cities for gay men to reside. This is one statistic that will help us ensure a wealth of performers and patrons. Over the past year we gained new OGC members from Minneapolis, Cleveland, Mount Dora and San Francisco – just to name a few. Also, the number of non-gay performers, patrons and volunteers has dramatically increased over the years. With a growing gay population and numerous heterosexual people looking for alternative and diverse types of entertainment…OGC is truly needed in Orlando. The only musical voice for the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community in Central Florida is the Orlando Gay Chorus. When OGC was formulating in 1990 there was discussion on whether or not to include the word "gay". Traditionally the gay community in Orlando was mostly closeted. The founding members decided "yes" to adding gay and also included into the official title of Orlando Gay Chorus, People with Pride. Today the volunteer singers and support people are both gay and non-gay. We have gone beyond diversity and into the realm of inclusion. It is important for Central Florida to see and understand the importance of the GLBT community. We are an integral part of the fabric of Central Florida. Our songs are sometime humorous, sometime serious, but we always sing with a message of tolerance, compassion and understanding. Our message is to promote a world free of prejudice. Our voices win freedom.
