SF Gay Men’s Chorus – Home for the Holidays

Sunday, November 27

Luther Burbank Center for the Arts
50 Mark West Spring Road in Santa Rosa

Since 1990, the acclaimed San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus (SFGMC) has been coming “Home for the Holidays” to Sonoma County to sing in benefit of F2F HIV prevention and care services programs.

The 2016 concert was nothing short of spectacular and was especially poignant this year coinciding with the anniversary date of the Chorus’s first performance on the steps of San Francisco City Hall at the candlelight vigil for Harvey Milk and George Moscone who had been assassinated on November 27, 1978.

“Home for the Holidays” is always a festive, heart-warming concert and simply a not-to-be-missed extravaganza! Check back here in late summer/early fall for the 2017 concert date.

News from the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus:

Recognizing a rapidly shifting climate in the United States marked by an increase in dangerous and divisive rhetoric against vulnerable minority populations, such as the LGBTQ community, the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus has announced the launch of its 2018 “Lavender Pen Freedom Tour.” In an effort to reaffirm its ever-present message of equality and inclusiveness, and the value in treating all individuals – irrespective of differences – with dignity, the Chorus will take their message across several southern states.

The Way He Looks – Friday, November 14 @ 8:20pm


The film is based on the popular short film “I Don’t Want To Go Back Alone” which received over 82 awards in festivals worldwide and has more then 3 million views on YouTube.

Leonardo is a blind teenager feeling overprotected by all of those around him. Struggling towards a more independent life, he has to overcome the vulnerability orbiting his condition.

At home, his mother won’t let him do things by himself, or even be alone. At school, his best friend, Giovana, leaves no room for him to stand up for himself before all the bullying. Besides, he’s never been kissed and is pretty confident that no one would consider dating the blind kid.

Victor/Victoria – Saturday, November 15th @ 2pm

Fountaingrove Lodge


On the verge of starvation in 1930s Paris, erstwhile entertainer Victoria (Julie Andrews) is rescued by gay cabaret performer Toddy (Robert Preston). What she needs to succeed, opines Toddy, is a gimmick. What if she becomes a male impersonator? Better still: what if she becomes a male impersonator, pretending to be a female impersonator? As “Victor/Victoria,” s/he becomes the toast of Paree, and an object of fascination for big-time Chicago gangster King Marchan (James Garner).

Pride – Thursday, October 30th @ 6:45pm

Pride is an inspirational comedy based on a true story about finding hope and friendship where you least expect it. It’s the summer of 1984, Margaret Thatcher is in power and the National Union of Mineworkers is on strike, prompting a London-based group of gay and lesbian activists to raise money to support the strikers’ families. Initially rebuffed by the Union, the group identifies a tiny mining village in Wales and sets off to make their donation in person. As the strike drags on, the two groups discover that standing together makes for the strongest union of all.
Starring Bill Nighy, Imelda Staunton, Dominic West and Paddy Considine, Pride is directed by Matthew Warchus and was written
by Stephen Beresford.
