On June 2-3, 2018, the Gay Men’s Chorus of Washington, DC presented TransAmerica, a celebration of the transgender and genderqueer communities. Critic Liz Ruth-Brinegar from MD Theatre Guide gave a rave review. Ms. Ruth-Brinegar writes, “When you’re at a concert that both moves you to tears and stuns you with the quality of musicianship, you know you’re watching the Gay Men’s Chorus of Washington, DC, under the direction of Dr. Thea Kano, who put on another spectacular concert.
The bravery of these individuals in sharing their truths, even truths that were difficult for their own chorus to hear, was extraordinary. The bravery of the GMCW to explore and shed a light on these truths and commit to hearing them and growing in their own understanding of how to be better trans allies was also powerful and hopefully an inspiring lesson to members of the audience who perhaps realized through the course of this concert that they, too, needed to work on becoming a better ally.”
