Wow. I know it’s cliche, but I don’t know how I have come to be 50 so quickly. In my mind 50-year-olds are older than I think I am. Perhaps is a mis-perception. I may (most probably) have more to say about turning 50 in a later post, but for now I wanted to ask you help in something.
People have started asking, “what do you want for your birthday.” And to be perfectly honest, what I would really love is to be part of this history making trip the Boston Gay Men’s Chorus is embarking on. For those of you who know me, know that asking something like this isn’t easy. But, I love and am humbled at being part of this organization. When I participate in outreach concerts that help support Youth Organization and LGBT Organization I’m am sooo happy to be part of an organization that has an impact on this world of ours that so often seems like it’s spinning out of control.
The chorus mission statement is to create “musical experiences to inspire change, build community and celebrate difference.”
I cannot think of anything that would make me prouder than to participate in something that created headlines like:
Music Triumphs Injustice
Michael and I would love to go, but cannot afford the expense ourselves. So yes, in lieu of a 50th birthday gift, I’m asking you to take what ever you might have spent on a gift and help us reach our goal to be part of this amazing adventure. No donation is too small or insignificant and would be so appreciated!
Thanks very much!!
