One example of gracious response to the election, such as I and many are now advocating, was the Metropolitan Gay Men’s Choir cancelling their planned tour to China and Asia and deciding instead to tour parts of the U.S. they had not visited before. My sense was that this wasn’t going to be an “in your face” thing in deep red areas but a generous embrace of people who are afraid that they are losing “their” America. It sounded like this tour might serve to remove stereotypes and fears. Wonderful!
Like many of you, the 300+ members of the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus family – singers, staff and volunteers – have spent the last few days navigating our collective way through feelings of shock and despair. We have turned to and leaned on each other and, rather than succumbing to a sense of hopelessness and helplessness, have turned to what we know: MUSIC. It is our hope that this will comfort, encourage and empower you as we continue the good fight. – The San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus ( Dr. Timothy Seelig, Aritstic Director).
