A poster for the Orlando Gay Chorus concert, "The Colours of Life”. The event was held at University High School, located at 2450 Cougar Way in Orlando, Florida, on Sunday, April 14, 1996. Sponsored by Watermark, the Arts Services Council, and Scott Laurent Galleries, the show was a musical benefit in support of the AIDS Resource Alliance, CENTAUR, Hope &
Help, and the Serenity House. The poster features a large red ribbon surrounded by the title of the show and sketched faces on an off-white white background. Text is minimal, depicting title, time, location, and the OGC heading along with the logos of each sponsor 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.
