143 members from 20 countries with 4,759 singers + 400 supporting members = 5,159 persons 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 encourages 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.



We want to strengthen communication and cooperation between the LGBTQ+ choirs in Europe.
