To commemorate the SFGMC’s beginning in December 1978, the 215 current members chose December 1, World AIDS Day, for their celebratory concert, which featured an introduction by actress Piper Laurie. That concert also marked the world premiere of “New World Waking – Songs On The Road To Peace, inspired by John Lennon’s Piano.”

Further commenting on SFGMC’s next 30 years, Teddy says, “The chorus exists to spread love and understanding.” Toward that goal for its next three decades, the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus will continue to “spread love” and support those who are sharing their love, by continuing to perform at weddings, commitment ceremonies, and civil unions.
