Europride is Go!

As mentioned on the other side (with mistakes; see comments), Europride is on its way. The Festival leading to Pride itself started a week ago but for me things really heated up last night.

I was singing at the Queen Elizabeth Hall (QEH) with the London Gay Men's Chorus and 5 other choirs (City of Brighton Gay Men's Chorus, Rainbow Chorus, Diversity, Pink Singers and Mannenkoorts from the Hague) as part of EuroPride Sings. It was nice for me to return to the QEH since it was where I took part in my first concert with the Chorus, four years ago to the month.

During the week, I will make an appearance on the construction site of the Southwark LGBT Network float for the Pride Parade before spending most of Saturday walking along the said float as a steward. Again marking a four year involvment; this time with stewarding at the Pride Parade.

Finally, on Sunday, I will be back on stage; at the Royal Albert Hall (RAH) this time to take part in EuroPride 2006: The Show. The Chorus has been invited along with a few big name to celebrate the end of Pride and will, notably, be singing Proud, in duet with Heather Small.

Looks like we will also sing a few lines with Elton John for the finale...

Should be fun!
