The Gay Men’s Chorus of Washington DC will perform an outreach concert to celebrate the one year anniversary of Loudoun Out Loud, the only Loudoun County PFLAG support group.
The kick-off celebration of Loudoun Out Loud was actually one year ago yesterday. We have made a lot of progress in Loudoun – but of course the real celebration will begin when support groups are no longer needed, anywhere, for people to just be who they are.
The press release from UUS is below.
