TRIANGLE GAY MEN'S CHORUS
February 5, 2011

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.

By they time we got to the last song: "Listen to my Heart", I could barely sing, the words resignated with the moment, my life and my family's life was positively transformed forever.
