Part concert, part comedy revue, the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus’ Holiday Spectacular is the place to be each December. More than 100 voices strong and dressed in fabulously festive attire, the chorus performs beloved holiday songs and acts out timely, funny sketches in an event that has become a much-anticipated season highlight. Now celebrating its 45th year, the SFGMC sparked a nationwide LGBTQ+ choral movement after its first public performance at a vigil on the steps of San Francisco’s City Hall following the assassinations of Supervisor Harvey Milk and Mayor George Moscone. Since then, the chorus has become a cherished part of the fabric of not only San Francisco, but also the entire Bay Area. Expect favorites like “Jingle Bells” and “I’ll Be Home for Christmas,” classical choral works, and surprises galore! “An organization that, like [the gay] community, is as diverse, proud and creative as the rainbow” (Broadway World).
