The Denver Gay Men’s Chorus presents Disney PRIDE in Concert, a musical celebration of LGBTQ life, love, family, and perseverance taking place March 31 at 7:30 PM and April 1 at 3:00 PM at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House.
Disney movies and musicals have long resonated in the LGBTQ community because they often mirror experiences in a society that isn't always welcoming. Characters are often struggling to fit in, to accept themselves and long for a love that feels unattainable. Some have lost their family of origin and had to create a new one, yet they persevere and find joy in life. They express their alienation, desire, and determination in beautiful songs that have given solace and empowerment to generations of LGBTQ people.
Drawing inspiration from Disney's beloved catalog of songs from iconic films including The Little Mermaid, The Lion King, and Mary Poppins to modern classics Coco, Zootopia, and Wreck-It Ralph and the magical music of Disney Parks, the concert will feature a 25-piece orchestra, accompanied by choreography and visuals using assets from Disney’s films and archives.
