Community Involvement

Giving Back to our Community

 

The Harrisburg Gay Men’s Chorus is proud to be part of the Central Pennsylvania LGBT community. And we believe that being part of a community means we must be active participants if we are to make it more accepting and inclusive.

We lead by example, and that’s why we give back to our community in a multitude of ways.

 

FREE CONCERTS – The Harrisburg Gay Men's Chorus is taking an active role in helping make the ARTS more accessible to all by presenting our winter and spring concerts absolutely FREE to the public.

 

PATRONAGE – since 2006, the HGMC has hosted Voices United, a benefit performance that serves as the opening ceremonies for the Pride Festival of Central PA. All proceeds from this event are donated to the Pride Festival.

 

CHARITY - in 2018, the HGMC hosted a benefit concert with the Gay Men’s Chorus of Washington DC, raising funds and awareness for the LGBT Center of Central PA.

 

PARTICIPATION – HGMC members take part in the annual Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community, helping raise money for Alder Health, a provider of health care services to the regional LGBT community.

 

OUTREACH – HGMC members take an active role in the local Metropolitan Community Church’s Sharing Our Caring program by donating food, cooking and serving a free dinner and providing the evening’s entertainment to those living with HIV/AIDS in our community.

 

COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT – The HGMC proudly performs our National Anthem each year at LGBT Night for both the Harrisburg Senators and the York Revolution baseball teams.
