We formed, as the Brisbane Lesbian and Gay Pride Choir, in 1998. We weren’t a choir at the start but just a group of people who came together for a series of singing workshops funded by a Brisbane City Council grant. The fire was lit with those workshops and just a few months later we performed at the annual Pride Fair Day.
The Choir is a group of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer-friendly people who come together to sing. We think it’s important to perform in and for our local community.
Through our performances we share with audiences the great value of a diverse, inclusive and accepting society. At events in Brisbane and throughout Queensland we have often connected with people struggling with their own sexuality or identity. As a community choir, it’s a great feeling for us to know that our performances matter.
We are an SATB (soprano, alto, tenor, bass) choir and sing a range of songs and musical styles, including traditional, contemporary and original music. A large part of our repertoire is sung a cappella.
We aim to entertain audiences in the LGBTIQ+ community as well as audiences in the wider Brisbane, national and international community.
Through our performances we share with audiences the great value of a diverse, inclusive and accepting society.
We are always keen to welcome new members.
You do not need to audition to join the choir.
Choir rehearsals are held from 7:00pm to 9:00pm every Tuesday in West End during school term.
