Chicago Gay Men's Chorus (CGMC) stands with the victims of the Orlando massacre, and offer our heartfelt love and support to all of those impacted.  For that reason, we dedicate our upcoming concert "When You Sing Your Own Song, You Can Fly" to the city of Orlando and specifically to their LGBTQ community.

We will continue to stand strongly behind the LGBTQ  community, especially those who have been and continue to be marginalized by hatred, bigotry, discrimination, and violence. CGMC is and always will be a force for continued progress and change through the power of song.
The Board, staff, donors and patrons of CGMC will continue to stand for human dignity in all of its forms, and continue to foster a community of safety, mutual respect, fair and ethical treatment, and a sense of community that is inclusive of all its members.
Join us for a night of community and hope through song.

Yes You Read That Correctly, These 'Peace Loving' Christians Are Praising The Orlando Killer

These motherfuckers are praising the Orlando killer

Pat Robertson: “The left is having a dilemma of major proportions and I think for those of us who disagree with some of their policies, the best thing to do is to sit on the sidelines and let them kill themselves,” he said.

Walid Shoebat: ""The only ones moaning over fifty gays slaughtered are liberals, idiots and gay lovers." I don’t care about gays who are Muslim loving anti-gun liberals. Stupid people who hate life die. Stupid people who hate life always die. The haters of God love death."

Ted Cruz: For all the Democrats who are loud champions of the gay and lesbian community whenever there is a culture battle waging, now is the opportunity to speak out against an ideology that calls for the murder of gays and lesbians. ISIS and the theocracy in Iran (supported with American taxpayer dollars) regularly murder homosexuals, throwing them from buildings and burying them under rocks. This is wrong, it is evil, and we must all stand against it. Every human being has a right to live according to his or her faith and conscience, and nobody has a right to murder someone who doesn’t share their faith or sexual orientation. If you’re a Democratic politician and you really want to stand for LGBT, show real courage and stand up against the vicious ideology that has targeted our fellow Americans for murder.

Pastor Roger Jimenez of the Verity Baptist Church: Are you sad that 50 pedophiles were killed today? Um no, no one should be sad. I think it is great! I think that helps society. We do not need to do anything to help. As far as I’m concerned, Orlando is a little bit safer.
