The Gay Men's Chorus of Washington is traveling to Cuba Saturday to spread their message through song.
The 23 singers are among the first U.S. citizens who will be able to travel to Cuba since diplomatic relations with the U.S. improved. The group aims to raise awareness of LGBTQ rights through music.
"It brings people together over something without addressing the issue head on. So, I often find that music can be actually more powerful than giving a speech at podium," Executive Director Chase Maggiano said.
The chorus is scheduled to perform several concerts around Havana next week in addition to participating in forum-style discussions. They were invited by Mariela Castro, daughter of Cuban President Raul Castro.
The chorus learned some songs in Spanish and is set to perform with the Cuban gay chorus. They will kick off their Cuban tour with a concert July 10 in Miami.
Yeah, I guess they’ll be able to hit all the high notes!
Just a reminder, because it should never be forgotten:
Cardinal Bernardin requested (and had) the Chicago Gay Men’s Chorus singing at his Vigil Service. The Vigil is a Catholic liturgy. It is part of the official funeral rites of a Catholic.
Cardinal Bernardin was proclaiming at his own funeral what everybody always knew: He was a flaming, practicing homosexual. In fact, a homosexual predator.
He was also the best friend the abortionists ever had. He spent 20 years from Roe v. Wade to his death devising slogans and other weapons for the purpose of keeping Catholics voting for pro-abortion Democrats.
I suppose the “Gay” Chorus could spread a lot worse. They can sing the virtues of homosexual “marriage”. I hear they do a bang-up job with “Over the Rainbow”. Incidentally, the Gaystapo could learn a thing or two from the Cuban dictators.
The Commies used to send the homosexuals to lunatic asylums. I suppose the modern Commies like those running our country are happy to send traditional Christian believers to the loony bins.
Sadly, it looks like we’ll get more of the same with Cupich. Back to the bad old days.
The Cubans will be sorry they normalized relations with us! What’s the first thing America sends to your shores? The queer chorus! Aren’t we just fabulous!
Remember this: Bernardin chose to have his reward in this world. His reward ended upon the death of his body. His immortal soul is now experiencing the consequences of his choice.
What are they going to sing? Lola? Dude Looks Like A Lady? Funky Cold Medina? Take A Walk On The Wild Side?
Going down there to catch some fresh untouched AIDs strains, huh?
How about, “I Feel Pretty, oh so pretty!” “YMCA.” I’m sure they will find some great gay songs to sing.
Really? The first good-will tour from American civilians is about this? I’m just so sick of these people and their need for acceptance. Just how low is their self-esteem?
Why don’t they go to Iran and sing for the nuclear negotiations.
Yeah. He just said that “the consistent ethic of life” is “making a comeback.”
What that means is that he is going to be stepping up his efforts on behalf of pro-abortion Democrats. The “consistent ethic of life” was ALWAYS used by the bishops to accuse pro-life politicians of being “inconsistent.” Because they wanted to starve the poor, blow up the world, etc.
“It’s Raining Men.”
I’ve never seen a Hispanic (mestizo) gay. They are some I jut can’t think of any. I think this will backfire.
Arrested and summarily executed upon arrival? Oops!
