“Thank you for the experience of singing with the MileHIVoices (HIV+ chorus). In 20 years with GALA I have never done anything so wonderfully rewarding. I heard many stories from guys who used this concert to come out about their status to their own choruses. I know it was especially powerful for the guys who have been positive for less than 5 years to meet guys who have been positive for over 25.”
