GLOW Choir is Brighton’s Non-Audition, Natural Voice Community Choir for LGBTQIA+ Folks & Allies! All voices are welcome to join in the harmonious singing and supportive community fun.

GLOW has been a welcoming space for LGBTQIA+ folks and Allies to enjoy the good vibrations of community singing, since it began in 2015. GLOW kept going throughout the pandemic, meeting on zoom and in local parks, and is now back in full GLOWing glory in the beautiful acoustics of St Luke’s Church, Old Shoreham Road.

“GLOW choir is a supportive queer community, a place for everyone to find their voice and use it.” 

At GLOW you can express yourself, make friends and have fun. Explore and develop your voice and learn about music in an encouraging environment. Sing songs of pride, protest, depth, empowerment, joy, peace and more – songs from around the globe in many moods and genres. 

GLOW is led and run by Hannah-Rose Tristram, a Natural Voice Practitioner, choir leader, singing teacher, voiceover artist, yoga teacher and musician, whose musical interests, studies and passions are wide ranging. 

Songs are taught with clarity, patience and joy, and always with respect to their origins and/or composers. GLOW has an Anti Racism and Cultural Honouring policy and remunerations commitment in place. Songs are taught by ear at GLOW, so you don’t need to be able to read music-scores to join in. 

“The harmonies were glorious, such positive energy – so good for the soul”   

GLOW aims to be a safe community space for everyone under the LGBTQIA+ umbrella, however they identify, and whether or not they have or want words to describe their identity and experiences. GLOW’s inclusion practices are informed by feedback from GLOW choir members, and are always growing, changing and improving.

Hannah-Rose co-wrote the Natural Voice Network’s “Gender Inclusion and Awareness in Choirs” document, aiming to help choirs be more inclusive to people of all genders. She also co-founded Bi+ Pride UK which has gone on to be an award winning charity. Hannah-Rose’s passion for inclusion can be felt at GLOW.

“GLOW has made me feel more confident with my own voice and taking up space in the world – it feels like a safe space where I’m welcomed and that has had far reaching outcomes in the rest of my life.”

GLOW meets on selected Saturdays. Newcomers are welcome!
