The European Association of LGBTQ+ Choirs. A total of 151 members (139 regular members, 6 supporting members & 6 sub-ensembles) with 4,806 singers + 627 supporting singers 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.
