Partners In Harmony

The GMCW mission to champion equality includes honoring and promoting others whose mission enhances and complements our own. In a world where religious leaders and their organizations have too often embodied the oppression and rejection that many of us have suffered, we rejoice to notice the growing number of synagogues, congregations, churches, and other religious organizations that welcome, enfold, and celebrate LGBTQ persons.

Sometimes at great risk to the respect and support of their own traditions, sometimes in prophetic roles in their communities, sometimes as quietly and naturally as living out their core values, these groups are a rich source of meaning, community, service and worship for many of our singers and audience members.

We proudly list them here as our PARTNERS IN HARMONY. We recommend them to any who are looking for a faith community to call home.

To be included in future editions of this list, please contact Jack Reiffer, chair of the Partners in Harmony Task Force,, or contact the Chorus office at 202.293.1548.
