We are London’s LGBTQIA+ non-performing singing group. 

Many Voices began in 2013 as a “sing-for-fun” group for LGBTQIA+ people and their friends. Lesbian, gay, bi, trans and gender diverse, intersex, ace, queer and questioning people, and our allies, are welcome. We just sing because we like it, it makes us feel great, and we love the sense of connection and community that it brings.

We’re not a choir – we don’t perform, we don’t rehearse – so sessions are more like one-off workshops. Typically, we begin with warming up our bodies and voices (nothing strenuous), and sing short rounds, call-and-response, ditties, shanties, songs from different genres, traditions and cultures. The emphasis is on enjoyment rather than perfection – though there is often a wonderful sense of awe when we’ve sung something beautiful, or of achievement when we’ve learned something more challenging!

We teach all the songs by ear, so there’s no need to be able to read music. If you like to sing in the car or the shower, or if you haven’t sung since school but would like to try, you are assured of a warm and friendly welcome. No commitment required, no auditions, no performances, no pressure!

Many Voices is run by Gaynor and Tati (with thanks to Marilisa for managing it in 2022–23!). We have had various guest leaders.

Still to come in 2024:

We have two sessions left. On 1 September the session is co-led by Tati and Juliet Desailly, and the final Many Voices of 2024, on 3 November, will be led by the wonderful Val Regan.

We’re experimenting with a more manageable frequency of (roughly) every two months in 2024. We meet on Sunday afternoons (now 1:00–2:30pm, arrivals from 12:45) at Kensington Unitarians, near Notting Hill Gate tube, on these dates (4 February, 7 April, 2 June, 1 September, 3 November, in 2024).

Can’t wait to sing with you!
