About the Project

Our Voices: Our Songs was evening event, which was presented in conjunction with the Lesbian and Gay Community Services Center’s Kwanzaa celebration. It featured gospel singing, a panel discussion, and a screening of Them Children Can Sing, a film-video work-in-progress about the Lavender Light Gospel Choir.


In a panel discussion on the topic of gospel music in the lesbian and gay community, panelists explored the lyrical content of a selection of songs; discussed the implications of gospel as a literary form and oral tradition; and explored why particular songs have gained great significance for the African-American lesbian and gay community.
