We’ve just received word that the Trans Chorus of LA will be flying into Dallas this weekend to sing with the Turtle Creek Chorale in the chorale’s 24-hour sing-along marathon intended to raise awareness of transgender issues.

The chorale’s artistic director, Sean Baugh, told Dallas Voice recently that the event, expected to begin tonight (Friday, Aug. 11) around 6 p.m., was the chorale’s way of standing up to the anti-transgender bigotry and discrimination that is running rampant in our society today, especially in the Texas Legislature,, and in the White House, where Donald Trump recently posted a tweet saying trans people would not be allowed to serve in the military in any capacity.

“We don’t march,” Baugh said. “we sing.”
