The Philhomoniker - Schwuler Chor München e. V. were founded in 1990 as a non-profit and registered association . The combination of singing , choreography and staging makes them stand out from the classical choirs and can therefore be assigned to the revue - choir category .

The purpose of the association is to promote cultural purposes through the maintenance, promotion and expansion of choral singing and the preservation of musical cultural goals to strengthen the community between different social classes and groups at home and abroad. For this purpose, the common music-making of the members, the public concerts - through the prejudices against homosexuals in other population groups are reduced - and through contacts with other choirs.

  1. Legato, the European umbrella organization for gay and lesbian choirs
