“The music of the 1980s seems to have an almost universal appeal. Whether you were burning up the dancefloor in the 80s, or were not even born yet, the songs of Madonna, Cyndi Lauper, Queen, Bonnie Tyler are instant crowd favourites, at the karaoke machine, in the nightclubs, at the pub, and, for one night only, on stage with Sydney Gay & Lesbian Choir.

It is a non-audi oned choir which welcomes members regardless of their sexual iden ty or musical experience. The choir is open to all, united by a love of singing together and striving for performance excellence. A powerful symbol of diversity, inclusion and harmony, the choir has maintained a vital and visible presence in the history of Sydney’s LGBTQIA+ community since 1991.

Don’t miss your chance to get on your shoulder pads and big hair to relive the magic of the 80s, in this unforge able celebra on of music and community!
