May 29, 2013 Pride. Milk. The two words are inextricably linked in the gay-rights movement. Much of what we would consider the best of "out" gay culture community choruses, bands, sports leagues and more can directly trace their roots to icon Harvey Milk. That includes the Atlanta Gay Men's Chorus, formed just three short years after Milk as the first openly gay elected official and San Francisco Mayor George Moscone were gunned down on the steps of City Hall in To commemorate Milk's legacy and message of openness and inclusion, the AGMC is proud to be among a partnership of several LGBT organizations across the country presenting the premiere of a newly commissioned work titled "I Am Harvey Milk" in "Singing Out Proud: From ABBA to Gaga'' Friday and Saturday, June 28-29 during Atlanta Pride's Stonewall Month. The piece will be the opening act of the AGMC's summer concert, presented in three performances at Glenn Memorial Auditorium on the Emory University campus in Decatur.
