About the Project

The LGBT Requiem Mass project seeks to bring voice to the canon of Christian liturgical music, providing music as a tool for achieving greater LGBT equity and visibility within communities of faith, whether these communities are LGBT-affirming or non-affirming. Holcombe Waller will write an LGBT Requiem in memory of LGBT people persecuted - or abandoned to persecution - in the name of religion. Waller will also pursue funds to commission other liturgical musical works guided by the project's over-arching mission: to unite religious congregations and arts presenters as a community seeking common ground and advancement in the global movement toward LGBT safety and equality.
