Additionally, the Consulate sponsored the first American gay-straight alliance youth chorus, Diverse Harmony, to travel to Vancouver and take part in and sing at the Celebration of Light Fireworks festival. Diverse Harmony, hailing from Seattle, is a 58-member chorus which strives to perform music that opens the hearts and minds of people and communities and provides a safe environment for youth of diverse backgrounds to share their love of music and singing and to be accepted for who they are. Their performance was a perfect complement to Team USA’s fireworks display and the various Pride activities happening around the area. Diverse Harmony also sang with the Vancouver based choir, Cor Flammae at a free public event at Christ Alive Community Church in Vancouver.
