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.
Singers from UK LGBT community choirs will also be in the audience
to encourage audience singing and participation.
We are delighted to announce our guest star - 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.
