The Butterfly Music Transgender Chorus, based in Boston, Massachusetts, is one of the very first all-transgender choirs in the USA. We were founded in order to provide trans people a safe space to enjoy singing and build community, and to celebrate trans voices and trans musical talent.
"The chorus has been so good for me on so many levels. Beyond the musical aspect, there's also the fact that everyone I've met so far is nice. I'm making friends in addition to making music, and I hadn't expected that. It really has been quite wonderful. It really is similar to my transition in that I finally am not afraid to hide my voice from the world the same way I don't hide the woman inside me." - Janelle, chorus member
"The chorus offers an experience that is both freeing and powerful in its affirmation of TGNC people through empowering them to bring their whole beings, talents, interest, and motivation to create something beautiful from within themselves, and as a community. It's a positive way to build a stronger community around a shared interest and meaningful celebration." - Ruben Hopwood, Coordinator, Trans Health Program at Fenway Health
