Songs in the Key of Equality, Swish's major annual fundraiser, has been performed yearly since 2008. Swish first began in 2003 when a group of straight women wanted to make a contribution to the struggles they witnessed among their gay friends. The organization now has a diverse membership of 3,000 that includes gay and straight men and women and welcomes anyone contributing to the fight for equality.
