/ Allegro Non Troppo / Society & Culture / Allegro non troppo – Wear it with Pride and Gay Choirs

 

One of the most notable aspects of humanity, is communion of singing, especially in times of significant repression. Whole genres of music are represented by this aspect, gospel; music grew out of the enslavement of African people who were forced into cruel slavery by white Americans.
Gay and Lesbian communities have faced lifetimes of similar repression although not as violent as other communities, however the coming together to sing seems to be human instinct that brings communities in crisis together.
We are going to look at choirs in Different states today to see how they fit into their communities:
The Sydney Gay & Lesbian Choir (SGLC) was formed in 1991. It is one of Australia’s largest non-auditioned community choirs and is recognized as one of the best. We take delight in the diversity of both our membership and the music we perform. Come and enjoy our next performance or join us and sing. It is a lot of fun!
Gay and Lesbian Singers of Western Australia. GALSWA
We are a choral group who sing in four part harmony. We are proudly part of the Gay and Lesbian community and sing at events within our community and also in wider community events. Our choir is open to anyone wishing to join.
