In 2018 our organization supported two local non-profits helping to raise awareness and funding for these programs.


This year we are proud to include Blue Ridge Pride in our planned giving. Blue Ridge Pride has introduced it's Community Funding Grant Program which helps support local LGBTQ and allied organizations working to build inclusivity and diversity.

 

Asheville Gay Men's Chorus

For over 20 years Asheville’s gay men’s chorus has been sharing its voice with Asheville and the greater Western North Carolina area. Starting with just a few gay men the chorus continues to grow reaching an ever-increasing diverse audience.

Over the years the chorus has continued to provide concerts in cooperation with other organizations. Working with the local AIDS organization, local colleges, Blue Ridge Pride celebrations and the PULSE memorial. The chorus strives to build a stronger community within the organization and the community at large. Whether it be a wedding, a memorial or a performance for the regional Buncombe County Democratic Women the organization remains committed to offering excellence in musical performance and serving as ambassadors for the LGBTQ community.
