Oakland East Bay Gay Men's Chorus

I find that joining a chorus is often, quite literally, like joining a family. From what I’ve seen – though second- and third-hand – of married life, it starts out a little awkward at first, being around strangers about whom you know nothing besides your mutual love for a single someone. But gradually meetups become less awkward, and your conversation topics shift from the person you have in common to topics any two friends might discuss. Like mutual interests, the recent sports game, or whether any of your family members are cute and single. Well… perhaps not so much that last one.
