The Big Gay Sing

Trafalgar Square, London - 21st July 2012, 8:15pm

If you took part in The Big Gay Sing, whether as a performer or an audience member, please take our short survey to let us know what you thought.

The Big Gay Sing is a fun-packed, glitter-tastic sing-a-long event featuring all-time favourite gay anthems from ABBA, Queen, the Sound of Music, Lady Gaga and many more. A giant screen of lyrics will help lead the singing for this "all you can eat show-tunes buffet".

It features of medleys of popular and iconic anthems based on themes around relationships, love and all that jazz. The songs are universally recognisable and the show is for every one of all ages, regardless of sexuality.

Rhona Cameron Russell Grant

Our fabulous comperes are Rhona Cameron and Russell Grant.

With their encouragement, the audience participates in the singing by reading the playful subtitles on a large screen.

A five-piece band will be joined on stage by an LGBT community choir 'The Big Gay Singers' from the London Gay Men's Chorus, The Pink Singers and Diversity Choir.

Singers from UK LGBT community choirs will also be in the audience to encourage audience singing and participation.

Daniel Boys

We are delighted to announce our guest star - Daniel Boys. Daniel Boys is an award winning performer whose career encompasses TV, West End musicals, national tours, as well as numerous concerts and recordings. His appearance on the hugely successful BBC TV talent show Any Dream Will Do in 2007 firmly established him as one of the UK's brightest emerging musical talents.

Daniel has recently been seen as one of the headline performers in The Night of 1000 Voices at the Royal Albert Hall, hosted West End Live again - this time from Trafalgar Square and has just completed a successful run as Algernon in a new musical version of The Importance of Being Earnest at the Theatre Royal Windsor.

Originally conceived by Andrea Brown and Charlie Beale the show premiered in the UK at Southbank Centre's Queen Elizabeth Hall as part of the Various Voices Festival in May 2009. The sell-out performance was a resounding success - the London audience was international (delegates to the festival alone representing 15 or so countries), of all ages, lesbian, gay and straight. The evening was described as a riotous gay-themed 'last night of the proms' – singing your heart out 'en masse' turned out to be a truly life-enhancing and communal experience.
