To empower LGBT Choruses as we change our world through song.
Gender Language StatementGALA Choruses strives for gender neutrality with regards to language in recognition of the many genders represented within our choruses, singing sections and the LGBT community. When communicating within the GALA community please keep these guidelines in mind.
There are gender inclusive ways that you can address our community when speaking in a workshop or session. People or folks or simply everyone are more gender-neutral options (as opposed to Ladies and Gentlemen). Please refer to sections by voice part rather than gender, ie; tenors and basses rather than men or women.
We know that gender specific language is a part of our culture and we don’t expect each individual to overcome years of conditioning overnight. We appreciate your attempt to communicate in the most gender-neutral way possible.
