What We Do
Great performances are the most visible manifestation of the lesbian and gay band movement. Member bands across the country appear in hundreds of concerts, parades, and community events every year. Member bands in geographic proximity often perform together, and a typical marching schedule will include Pride Parades in several different cities.
Band music was the first true love that brought us together. By uniting men and women who share this love, bands help create and enhance the “community” its members call home. Through musical performance, LGBA bands make a powerful political statement in a non-political way.
Whether marching or playing a concert, we proudly proclaim We Are Who We Are. LGBA bands are sources of pride within their cities, as well as positive symbols of the same communities.
Making music creates a family where affection is means more than affectional preference. By “banding together,” LGBA shows that people of different sexes, ages, creeds, races, and challenges can build a strong community.
