We are taking part in LGBT Health and Wellbeing‘s Winter Fair at St Mark’s Unitarian Church, Castle Terrace on Saturday 10 December from 3pm. Edinburgh Gay Men’s Chorus are opening the concert and Loud & Proud will close with a few songs from our Festive repertoire. Our own Festive concert is on Saturday 17 December in St Cuthbert’s, Lothian Road. See the Performances page for more details.
We will no longer be taking part again in Light Nights – Edinburgh’s Christmas outdoor concerts – on Sunday 20 November. Look out for other taking in George Street.
Unfortunately, we’ve had to cancel this event because of lack of support. Karen Dietz, Loud & Proud’s inestimable music director was to have run a singing workshop at Augustine United Church which was to be open to all on Saturday 24 September.
Thanks for those who signed up. A fabulous day it would have been of fun and singing.
Loud & Proud were – well, proud to take part in the Vigil for Orlando in St Andrew Square in Edinburgh during the evening of 15 June 2016. We were all there to give solidarity and support to the survivors, their friends and families of the Pulse shootings on 12 June. We appeared along with Edinburgh Gay Men’s Choir and heard speakers as diverse as the First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, the Leader of the Scottish Conservatives and MSP for Central Edinburgh, Ruth Davidson and Louise Thomas, owner of the Street bar and speakers from Stonewall Scotland, Equality Network and Unite Against Fascism Edinburgh.
Photos of the occasion are in the Photo Gallery.
In February 2016, Loud & Proud were invited to the launch of Peebles High School LGBTI Youth Group. We enthusiastically responded by singing songs of freedom and friendship. Two members read letters to themselves at teenagers, to add to the occasion. We were delighted to be asked and more than happy to make a return visit.
