Choir Profile

They are a relatively new choir who formed in 2005. The founding members were in the London Gay Men's Chorus. They then moved to Brighton and set up this choir as there wasn't a gay men's choir in Brighton. The Brighton Gay Men's Chorus exists to give the gay men of Brighton a chance to meet and interact with new people away from the social scene of bars and clubs. Their most important raison d'ĂȘtre is to be entertaining.

I recently saw them perform in a Brighton pub. I thought they were great. I wish i had the guts to join them. But at 77, i think im a bit too old i guess.

these guys were really good but were put in a tough heat you shouldnt of gone out first thing i thought you would of last chance songs at least, but someone had to go sense of sound and Ysgol Glanaethwy were really good as well as the alleycats and dreemz. you could entertain better than any choir so best of luck in the future

They were great to watch and have tremendous energy and stage craft, it's a shame they did not go further. Their Pride concert was a real 'hoot' we enjoyed it thoroughly
