We were delighted to sing at Edinburgh Castle to celebrate LGBT History month and the launch of Historic Environment Scotland’s LGBTI+ network on Saturday 23 February. Have a look at the photo album.
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.
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.
Loud & Proud has been nominated for a Cultural Award in annual Equality Network awards. Thank you for voting for us. It goes without saying you’re the best supporters we’ve ever had! The results will be announced at the first Scottish LGBTI Awards which will take place at the Grand Central Hotel, Glasgow, on Thursday 10 September 2015. We’ll let you know the results here.
Loud & Proud Choir will perform a programme of specially arranged repertoire that celebrates LGBT History and provides inspiration to tackle continuing challenges faced by our community in Scotland and beyond at 3 events in the Lothians in February.
The choir is grateful to LGBT Youth for the funding that has made this possible.
