When I first heard the Triangle Gay Men's chorus, 8 years ago, they were doing a Broadway review. The concert was wonderful, full of the excitement and drama you find in broadway music. There was also a touching tribute to a mother(author), who was sitting at her son's bedside as he lay dying from aids complications. She asks the nurse what can I do, to which the nurse replied: "just sing". That moving tribute, coupled with having his "quilt" present in the church, was the motivation I needed to get involved with this organization...I was hooked.

I have attended several of their concerts and they have always made me feel happy to have been there. They are a wonderful group and their singing is greattttt. I hope to attend more in the near future.

I have truly enjoyed singing with this group. We perform a variety of music, from silly to provocative.

It was quite a thrill to be on the UNC-G stage as part of this group becoming the first gay group to sing before the NC chapter of ACDA (American Choral Director's Association).

All kudos for this group has been truly earned.

TGMA is my queer community which helps me feel connected to others. I love to sing, and love to with other gay men. I moved to Durham for a one-year job, and TGMC was the first place I stopped to connect with community. I have never been sorry I have done so.

If you get the chance to come hear us sing - don't pass it up. I only hope it fills your heart with the same happiness I experience when singing for you!

As I am a new member to this group my heart has been touched by the songs we sing. But the "Bravesouls and Dreamers" concert has really touched my heart. As I listen to the songs and sing the words it speaks to me about peace and how people are fighting for that, not just in the GLBT community, but everywhere. It brings tears to my eyes and gives me confidence that peace will come. My prayer for everyone who comes to our concert is that they will be filled with joy and that our songs will bring them comfort and peace and tears of happiness. That they will see that meaning behind the songs. We are not just singers, we are messengers, and we hope the message will bring peace. I am proud to be a part of this experience. God bless you all.
