Member of LA Gay Men’s Chorus Comes Out: He Likes Girls
Near the end of last month’s three-concert run at the Los Angeles Theatre Center, members of the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles paused to share some quiet time and recognize those who contributed to the shows’ success.
The tribute session took an unexpected turn when one of the group’s newest singers raised his hand to speak. “I want to thank everyone for welcoming me,” said tenor Chris Yraola, a 24-year-old music teacher from Eagle Rock. “It means a lot because, No. 1, I’m a little shy. And, No. 2, well, I’m a straight guy.”
