The chorus was founded by gay music pioneer Jon Reed Sims. The group does not require that members identify as gay or bisexual. The eligibility requirements for SFGMC are to be at least 18 years of age, to self identify as a man, and to pass the audition process defined by the Artistic Director. Today, with a membership of over voices , the SFGMC continues to present a wide range of music and perform for many different kinds of audiences. The chorus held its first rehearsal on October 30, Despite the precedent set by the band, chorus members debated whether to use the word "gay" in its name:.
With a primary focus on performances, public programs and community partnerships, the Center provides a space to bring the arts community and SFGMC together. The four-story building, which will undergo significant renovations to modernize and adapt its use for a performing arts organization, allows SFGMC to embark on never-before-possible programs. SFGMC will now be able to host ongoing master classes and an interview series with notables such as Award-winning composers Stephen Schwartz and Andrew Lippa and actress and singer Laura Benanti , community sing-ins, a new and exciting virtual reality experience and a recording and production studio. Chris Verdugo , Executive Director of the Chorus, stated, "We are so grateful to Terrence Chan and his life partner Edward Sell who will lead our campaign and our board of directors for their most generous support of this remarkable venture. We look forward to working with and alongside other LGBTQ arts organizations while supporting them in their artistic and advocacy endeavors.
