The DCYC’s mission is to develop the voices, the character strengths and values in the young people served, and to have fun! This educational and outreach choral program will encourage and foster artistic expression, personal development, and leadership in lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning intersex and allied youth and will present musical performances that provide an opportunity and space for young people, however they identify, to say ‚Äúthis is a place where I am accepted for who I am and everything that I bring,” and share those gifts with the greater Cincinnati community to encourage and promote acceptance, love and connection.
