The San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus ceremonially broke ground on its interior renovation of the Pansy L. Chan and Terrence D. Chan National Queer Arts Center at 170 Valencia Street September 8. The festivities included a performance by San Francisco's Lion Dance Me group and attendees included gay District 8 Supervisor Rafael Mandelman along with chorus officials Chris Verdugo, executive director, and Jacob Stensberg, artistic director. The chorus purchased the building in 2019 and, when the renovations are completed, it will allow the chorus to have specific programs dedicated to performances and will mark the first permanent home for the singing group.
