    • I doubt that they actively exclude heterosexuals. Heterosexuals probably choose to exclude themselves, though.

      I wonder if the fact that it’s an all-volunteer chorus might have something to do with it. If they do exclude straights, they’re not interfering with anyone’s ability to make a living.

    • Oh dear, one of those.

      Honey, I don’t think there’s any audition apart, perhaps, from a musical one. You don’t have to, you know, do it. So you can join!

      Coming next: “And why can’t we have Straight Pride?”

      • Straight Pride Parade is in Boston with Milo Yiannopolis as the grand marshall. The group organizing the parade is called Super Happy Fun America.
        Can’t make this stuff up.

  • There’s a real need for a gay men’s chorus. A gay man cannot possibly make it in the classical music business.
    Oh my the discrimination!
