I Rise, presented by GMCLA at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in early July, 2017

GMCLA returns to Walt Disney Concert Hall for an evocative and uplifting concert, exploring the sometimes complicated relationship between the LGBT community and faith… and celebrating a new future of inclusion. Blending touching personal stories with pop and rock favorites, hymns, and show tunes, we will take you on a spiritual journey, leaving you contemplating a new day of greater acceptance and understanding.

This concert explores the intersection of Faith Communities and the LGBTQ Community with the hope of creating positive change and exploring a new future that is possible. For many in the LGBTQ Community faith / religion has not been welcoming nor accepting, but rather associated with condemnation, non-acceptance, guilt, and shame.  We are seeing recent developments where religious and political organizations are trying to justify discrimination against LGBTQ people through the guise of “religious freedom.”  As our country seems to be more divided than ever, this concert couldn’t be more more timely or relevant.
