Our Mission

Our mission is to promote and preserve artistic expression and education within the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender (LGBT) community and its allies, through instrumental music performance.

Who We Are

In 1990 the Rose City Gay Freedom Band was formed by a small number of committed musicians who shared a passion for making music and gay community pride. RCGFB has grown over the years to encompass the 3 groups that currently make up the organization: Portland Gay Symphonic Band, Rose City Swing, and the Portland Pride Band.

RCGFB provides an artistic outlet that is open to all LGBTQI people and supportive friends.
