About Us

As the longest running LGBTQ+ choir in Europe, The Pink Singers was established in London in 1983 to march in London’s Gay & Lesbian Pride and we’ve been singing and marching ever since. We are an auditioned choir of 80-100 members with strong community connections. Though a community choir, we have a reputation for high standards of performance that we are keen to uphold and grow. We have a long standing relationship with large London venues such as Cadogan Hall, where we currently perform 2 concerts a year.

We are a registered charity run by volunteers, and our aim is to share the joy of music within the LGBTQ+ community in the UK and around the world, and to promote and celebrate equality and diversity.
