Members of Trans Chorus of Los Angeles celebrate 7 years of creating good, diverse and inclusive music

LOS ANGELES – The members of the Trans Chorus of Los Angeles are celebrating their seven years of great music.

The Transgender Choir of Los Angeles was the first transgender choir in the US, comprised of transgender, non-binary, intersex, non-binary, and non-binary individuals. TCLA celebrates diversity and acceptance so that others can see and feel the joy they share through music.

“We met in 2015 and started a chorus that sprang from GMCLA wanting visibility through,” said Kathryn Davis, chief executive officer.

“The original idea for this choir came from an episode of ‘Glee’,” said Abdullah Hall, the choir’s artistic director.

“We’re singers. That’s what we do,” Davis said. “We also happen to be transgender and we take great pride in that and being able to represent the transgender community with our voices.”

Daniel Sanchez is a member of Trans Chorus.

“It wasn’t until I started seeing TCLA more in the media that I decided, you know, I’m not the only one. I can go and I can perform, and I can help others like me”. Sanchez said. “The only way I can describe it is pride and happiness.”

The performers are getting ready for a July 10 performance at the Renberg Theater in Hollywood titled “Voices.”

“They will come to hear stories about humanity, about all the intricacies of life,” says Hall. “And through that to see how united we are as citizens of this planet.”
