The European Association of LGBTQ+ Choirs. We currently have 140 regular and supporting members from 21 countries with 142
choirs and sub ensembles, 3 music ensembles (2 orchestras, 1 big band), 1 regional choir association. 5,500 singers and musicians are represented in our choirs and ensembles. 49 are tenor/bass ensembles, 22 are soprano/alto and 71 soprano/alto/
tenor/bass, look to us for support and leadership.
We promote art, culture, and understanding between nations, staging choral singing events with participants from many European nations.
We maintain an up-to-date list of LGBTQ+ Choirs in Europe and publish events being run by these Choirs locally, and encourage people to go and support the events.
We connect new LGBTQ+ Choirs with more experienced ones so that they can avoid some of the pitfalls of starting a new Choir.
We are actively supporting the development of LGBTQ+ Choirs in Eastern Europe, where in many countries to be LGBTQ+ is considered a crime, and people are persecuted.
We work for the emancipation of LGBTQ+ individuals in Europe and combat discrimination against these groups.
