Music Monday: Dancing Queen I Boston Gay Men's Chorus


Anne Marie is going to haunt me for this, at least it is not Abba performing it.  I saw this and I loved it.  The music is good, but even better, not all of the performers on the front row, are 120 pound twinks that look like they just left a porn shoot.  They are real people, in all shapes and sizes, and they have overcome their fears of being seen as who they are.  Accept who you are, enjoy it, it is you.  For many in the LGBTQ community, the last closet to come out of, is hatred of one's own body image. Relax, you are the best you there will EVER BE, we don't need you to change a thing, thin, geeky, average, hunky, chubby, chunky, bearish, you are all perfect.

  2. What a joy. I haven’t seen a gay men’s chorus in years. We used to love to go. Some seem more inclusive than others. This made me happy.

  3. Fabulous. I had the honor of attending rehearsals, the Boston Pride parade, and a BGMC concert as a special guest when I was invited as the president of our local LGBT chorus many moons ago. We used to see them perform every year in December in Ptown as part of the “Holly Folly” weekend.

    Body shaming (ourselves and/or others) can be crippling. Promoting, embracing, and supporting diversity needs to extend to all body types and physical capabilities. We are no less human for our extra weight, scars, differently able bodies, or life saving devices. It is refreshing to see better representation.

    Thanks for the great post.

  4. I, like Anne Marie, LOATHE ABBA, but, also like Anne Marie, love anything gay, and this is so gay--it way out-gays ABBA itself--that I love it.
    And I think she would, too!

  6. This made me grin, showing all what's left of my teeth! I agree with Bob. Anne Marie would love this (as long as it is not ABBA performing).
