QwertyQueer - first LGBT Choir of Ukraine, the idea was announced in August 2014 during the queer week Munich-Odessa and its implementation started in January 2015 in Odessa on the initiative and full support of the community center "QueerHomeOdessa".

The choir engaged everyone, regardless of the availability of music education, but with a great desire to improve and develop their talents. Our singers are very friendly, responsive, are activists and volunteers in the community center Queer Home Odessa, take part in all kinds of flash mobs, promotions, events and workshops, general affairs and activities, interests make our movement more productive, visible and meaningful. Participation in the choir helps to learn how to communicate with people a new way to overcome stage fright, do not be afraid to be heard
