MISSION AND HISTORY
Youth Pride Chorus harnesses the power of the performing arts to galvanize lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and straight young people ages 13-22 as agents of change. YPC refuses homophobia, bullying, and all forms of hate by boldly asserting the joy, diversity, strength, and pride of today's youth. YPC singers discover their own power by empowering others in schools, online, and for the general public through electrifying performances of the highest calibre.
YPC has performed as guest artists at the GLAAD Media Awards, GLSEN's Respect Awards, Broadway Backwards at Lincoln Center, and with Cyndi Lauper on her True Colors Tour and her Home For The Holidays concert benefitting homeless LGBT youth. In 2003 Big Apple Performing Arts and the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center's Center Youth program came together to create YPC. Youth Pride Chorus is under the artistic direction of Ben Houghton and Katy Pfaffl, co-founders of Broadway's Babies.
