Gay Men’s Choruses fight hate by serenading Focus on the Family

Gay Men’s Choruses fight hate by serenading Focus on the Family

If you grew up watching the Care Bears, you know that the best way to fight darkness and evil is with love and light. Like those colorful cartoon bears, the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus recently shared the love with anti-gay group Focus on the Family while in Colorado, Joe.My.God. reports.

Surrounding the sign at the conservative Christian group’s headquarters in Colorado Springs, the chorus sang a rousing rendition of “If You Were Gay” from the musical Avenue Q. The Gay Men’s Chorus explained their reasons for the performance in an email to supporters:

This was part of an outreach extension tour SFGMC is doing, following the quadrennial GALA Choruses Festival, which brings together over 160 LGBT choruses from North America and beyond every four years.

This year, GALA Festival was held in Denver, and so SFGMC decided to head to Colorado Springs after the conclusion of the Festival to perform a benefit concert for local LGBT charities. We are joined by the Denver Gay Men’s Chorus and Out Loud: Colorado Springs Men’s Chorus.

The groups also performed at the Air Force Academy Chapel, an apparent first for gay choruses.

Watch the performance below.
