To make up for the boo-hiss the Prez-Elect’s getting from the GLBT community, organizers of the star-packed Lincoln Memorial concert on Sunday signed up the Rev. Gay himself, V. Gene Robinson, Episcopalians’ openly man-loving bishop. AND he promises not to go all Christian on the invocation. But that’s not all. The Gay Men’s Chorus of Washington is playing some role.
From the GMCW release:
This is the first time in American history that the GLBT Choral Movement will be represented at an inaugural ceremony. 100 GMCW members from the larger chorus of more than 250 singing members will perform with featured celebrity entertainers to be announced. Both President-elect Barack Obama and Vice President-elect Joe Biden will be in attendance. An audience of 800,000 is expected at the Lincoln Memorial.
Oh please say they are backing Beyonce.
