The Orlando Gay Chorus (OGC) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit arts and humanitarian organization and one of the largest mixed-gender LGBTQ choirs in the country. The members of the chorus, now 150+ strong and comprised of gay, straight, bisexual, and transgender individuals, feel thankful to be able to carry on our mission and vision. Our musical artistry speaks directly to our pride in ourselves and offers the world a chance to see beyond headlines and contentious social issues to build bridges of understanding and love.
Founded on Valentine’s Day in 1990, OGC has been a fixture in the Central Florida area for over 28 years. In addition to the full chorus, OGC has four ensembles that perform at the annual concerts and cabarets, as well as outreach events: OUTLOUD!, the oldest running ensemble; Nothin’ But Treble, the all-female ensemble; Menage, the jazz ensemble; and Spectrum, the mixed ensemble.
