A poster for the Orlando Gay Chorus (OGC) concert, “We're Ready for Our Close-Up: A Tribute to the Movies”. The event was held at The Plaza Live, located at 425 North Bumby Avenue in Orlando, Florida, on May 18 and 19, 2013. The event was a tribute to the music of the movies. Tickets were $25 in advance through chorus members and orlandogaychorus.org and $30 at the door. The poster has a black background with rope-lined red carpet that ends at the title, illuminated in lights. Featured artwork includes the logos of the OGC, the Plaza Live, and various sponsors across the bottom of the page.

The Orlando Gay Chorus is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit arts and humanitarian organization part of GALA Choruses. Founded on Valentines Day 1990, OGC is not only one of the largest mixed gay choirs in the United States at over 100 members, but they also boast four smaller ensembles that perform annual concerts, cabarets, and a whole host of community events like Come Out With Pride, Orlando Museum of Art’s Festival of Trees, and World Aids Day memorial services. In 2017, the group performed at over 105 events, including 15 performances for the first anniversary of the Pulse Nightclub tragedy. Members come from all walks of life and all sexual and gender orientations, including straight allies. OGC lives by the motto “Singing the World to a Better Place” and strives to use music to change attitudes and build a stronger community.
