Transcript JANUARY 10. 1986 / MONTROSE VOICE 3 Gay Chorus Charges Choral Association Discriminates From a Press Release The Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles (GMCLA) has charged the American Choral Directors Association (ACDA) with discrimination because of ACDA's policies denying choruses with "gay" in their titles performance at ACDA conventions. In a blind audition. GMCI-A was chosen out of 49 groups in the Western Division to be among 17 choruses to perform at the Western Division conference to be held in San Jose in February. Under guidelines recently enacted by the ACDA's Board of Directors, groups with "controversial" titles are not allowed performance in ACDA conferences using names deemed "controversial" by ACDA. ACDA believes that the "controversial" nature of these titles (e.g., "gay") detracts from the musical performance, and that ACDA should not be a forum for political viewpoints. In its seven-year history, the GMCI_A has viewed itself as a musical organization with "soft-sell" politics.

"We exist primarily as a musical group with purposes and goals aligned with those of ACDA. We see ourselves as a community chorus with roots in the gay community, just as the Mormon Tabernacle Choir is rooted in the Mormon community." After several attempts to negotiate and even compromise with ACDA, the GMCLA brought the issue to the American Civil Liberties Union in September, where they discussed the issue with Susan McGrievy. McGrievy thought there was sufficient legal grounds to pursue ACLU's involvement in the situation. The case has been referred to the ACLU Northern California region, where it is currently being handled by Alan Schlosser in the San Francisco office. Kip Edwards, the cooperating attorney, was scheduled to file the complaint in Santa Clara County Superior Court on Dec. 31. The complaint is for preliminary and permanent injunction based on the Unruh Civil Rights Act and violation of Common Law Right of Fair Procedure. The case has national ramifications and, in fact, a national history. In 1983, the New York City Gay Men's Chorus (NYCGMC) was chosen by similar blind audition to perform at the 1984 ACDA Eastern Division conference in Baltimore. The national leadership of ACDA subsequently took action (following a successful performance by NYCGMC) in the form of the current discriminatory guidelines. Chicago's Windy City Gay Chorus has also been chosen to perform in the 1986 Central Division conference and is bearing the pressure of ACDA to perform without "gay" in their name as well. The lawsuit is a crucial part of the strategy being implemented in the issue with ACDA. Another integral part of this strategy involves informing ACDA of the amount of support the Gay Men's Chorus has from gay and non-gay organizations, businesses, politicians, other choral groups and individuals. Anyone wishing to offer support to GMCLA in the form of a letter may address their correspondence to Hugh Sanders and the Executive Committee, American Choral Directors Association, P.O. Box 5310, Lawton, Oklahoma 73504. The American Choral Directors Association is the professional organization in the United States which directors of choruses belong. Most of its 12,000 members are directors of school and church choirs. Gay Health Advocates to Meet Saturday The Houston Gay Health Advocates will hold their January meeting at the Montrose Counseling Center, 900 Lovett, Suite 201, on Saturday, Jan. 11, at 7:30 p.m. The meeting will feature a panel presentation, followed by a discussion, of the problems (and possible solutions) arising from the present refusal of nursing homes and extended care facilities to accept patients with AIDS. The panel, featuring representatives from the KS/AIDS Foundation and the medical profession, will be presenting the facts at the meeting.
