The Rochester Gay Men's Chorus is a local choir. They were founded in 1982 by five friends and today include over 80 members, with about 40 performing at any given time. The RGMC has performed all over the country and is known for their local activism. They are very prominent in New York State, having inspired the creation of the Buffalo Gay Men's Chorus, the Ithaca Gay Men's Chorus, and the Syracuse Gay & Lesbian Chorus. The RGMC is trans* inclusive and open to anyone who can sing in a men's vocal range (first or second tenor, baritone or bass).

The chorus also includes a dance troupe called the Rochettes. Their styles include tap, swing, jazz, country, waltz, Broadway, disco, hip-hop, and more.

Rehearsals are held weekly at Downtown United Presbyterian Church. New members are welcome to join in September, January and April. Major concerts are in December, March and June at the Hochstein School of Music and Dance, featuring the Chorus, the Rochettes and guest performers.
