CGMC Sponsorship Opportunities

Founded in 1983, CGMC has entertained audiences across the continent with innovative musical programming exploring everything from love to politics to the sometimes fabulous, sometimes challenging world of being gay-often all at the same time.

CGMC offers sponsors strategic ways to:

  • Reach targeted audiences via our membership and audience
  • Strengthen company branding and public relations exposure to the LGBTQ+ community
  • Provide diverse entertainment for your organization
