The GenOUT Youth Chorus is the Washington, DC area’s only vocal ensemble for LGBTQ+ and allied youth. An outreach ensemble of the Gay Men’s Chorus of Washington, DC, GenOUT operates under a two-fold mission: (1) to give LGBTQ+ and allied youth a voice through song, and (2) to connect that voice to the community. The ensemble is open to all singers between the ages of 13 and 18. Since its debut in the spring of 2015, the GenOUT Chorus has performed at the Lincoln Theatre, the Kennedy Center, the Washington National Cathedral, the White House, the Library of Congress, the GALA Choruses Festival, and the ACDA National Conference. Nearly 140 singers from over 80 schools have participated in GenOUT. In Spring 2024, 25 singers from schools in and around the DC metro area are singing in GenOUT.
