I have always loved singing, school choirs, singing my own songs that I have written, singing with my sisters...I come from quite a musical family and it has always been a big part in our lives.
I have only moved to Brisbane about 3 years ago, and I don't go out much so most of my friends are from work. Over the last 6 months I have been craving to sing a bit more, my song writing skills have been pretty dormant recently and I really was looking for an outlet. I had actually been looking at choirs a while before I joined BLGPC, I wanted something that was fun, community driven, but not too full on and sang some good songs. I couldn't seem to find anything, maybe I wasn't looking hard enough! Then out of the blue my hairdresser asked me if I would like to join his lesbian and gay choir, I was so happy he asked. I contacted them that night and joined in the next weeks rehearsals. Everyone was so nice, so inviting and I felt at home straight away. That first practice I enjoyed so much that I signed up for the semester straight away.
I've only been in the choir 1 semester now and I love it! Great people, great songs, Tim our musical director is fantastic and we sound great! What a fun atmosphere to come together and sing and just enjoy the sound of our lesbian, gay, bi, trans and straight community together. I would encourage anyone who loves to sing and wants to be a part of a group to come along! We'd love to have you on board.
The Brisbane Lesbian and Gay Pride Choir is a non-auditioned choir, open to gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, intersex, queer and straight people who love to sing.
The Choir rehearses every Tuesday evening at the New Farm Library meeting room, 135 Sydney Street, New Farm. The next (Semester 2) intake for new singers begins on Tuesday, 8 July.
