The Youth Pride Chorus: a program combining the program specialties of the New York City Gay Men's Chorus and the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center of New York. It is a completely free program for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender young people and their allies between the ages of 14-21. Participants learn choral music in weekly rehearsals and perform in concerts here at The Center and on the road. Auditions for the Youth Pride Chorus are held in September and January.

 “Perhaps one of the greatest emotional pains any person can experience is that of being isolated and ostracized,” says Richard D. Burns, executive director of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center. “The Youth Pride Chorus has the ability to break isolation so many LGBT youth confront. The community supports young people by supporting the Youth Pride Chorus.”
