Solent Gay Men's Chorus

Welcome to Solent Gay Men's Chorus!

Our aim is to bring gay, bisexual and transgender men together to sing, perform, socialise and raise money for local charities.

Solent Gay Men's Chorus was founded in 2012 and we now have an active membership of over thirty men. We're always looking for new members from 18 years of age upwards and of all abilities who love to sing. There is no audition to join us, and you can just come along for a free rehearsal to see if it's for you.

Something Inside So Strong!

Our first COVID-19 lockdown project and first ever YouTube video is Labi Siffre's 1987 top-ten hit, Something Inside So Strong!


Sadly, the COVID-19 outbreak has naturally put a stop to our rehearsals for now, and many events that we were due to perform at have been cancelled.

We're still rehearsing away by ourselves though, and we're looking at projects we can do online that we can share with you all to help ease us through this difficult to time.

Stay safe everyone and let's go through this together.

Sing Out Solent

For 2020, we were planning on expanding Sing Out Solent, our choir for all genders to be monthly. Naturally, with the virus outbreak, we're unable to commit to this at this point. We definitely want to expand SOS, so check back once everything starts getting back to normality again!

All members of the Southern Hampshire / Solent area LGBT+ community – including allies – aged 18 to 180 are welcome to come and sing with us in this very exciting choir entering in to its third year.

SOS singing workshops are for all to join and work together to learn fun and exciting music with no commitment to attend the weekly, regular SGMC rehearsals.
