Sing OUT Proud is Glasgow’s new LGBTI choir that aims to provide the community and its friends a safe place to celebrate their diversity in song.

The choir is open to everyone and welcomes new members regardless of their previous musical and singing experience.

Founder Christopher R Livingstone told KaleidoScot that Sing OUT Proud has it roots in a cursory group that was part of the Scottish Association for Mental Health.

Christopher, who has previous experience with the Loud and Proud Edinburgh community choir, said, “I always felt that Glasgow needed something with the same kind of Ethos.

“There are already couple of people in this awesome adventure and we are very happy to welcome anyone who wishes to sing.

“It’s a great way to engage the LGBTI community to sing, and in turn, participation enhances community spirit and personal well being.

“We aim to focus on history month as an official launch, possibly starting with flash mobs and a mini performance.”

Sing OUT Proud’s first meeting will take place on the 19th September, 7pm to 9pm at Wellington Church, 77 Southpark Avenue, Glasgow, G12 8LE.

It will also meet on 16th Sept and 30th September at the same time.
