A CONCERT CELEBRATION OF THE PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE OF THE LGBTQ RIGHTS MOVEMENT

Marking the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, which began on June 28, 1969, and commemorating San Francisco’s own Compton Cafeteria Riot which occurred in 1966, SFGMC will honor those who helped catapult the gay rights movement into the public forum coast to coast.

The program features beloved gay anthems, as well as songs that pay tribute to the themes of strength, perseverance, and acceptance. Works include Andra Day’s “Rise Up,” Simon and Garfunkel’s “The Sounds of Silence” by Paul Simon, “You Will Be Found” from Dear Evan Hansen, Sylvester’s “You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real),” and “Sticks and Stones” from Andrew Lippa’s oratorio, I Am Harvey Milk, originally recorded by SFGMC.

Queens features special guest appearances from San Francisco’s celebrity drag queens, including Donna Sachet, Sister Roma and Sister Phyllis of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, Heklina, Kylie Minono, and SFGMC’s very own Drag All-Stars. Don’t miss our tribute to the Imperial Court and Ducal Council of San Francisco!
