It’s great to finally be ready to launch our documentary about the first Sing Out project with Mosaic LGBT Youth Centre and London Gay Men’s Chorus! The lovely team at Raw Pictures did a great job of capturing the journey of the participants, volunteers and youth workers alike, as we explored important issues and created music together.
The film was shown at the performance and helped give the audience an insight into what the project was all about. We now have that live performance footage to share also. It really is amazing to think of how far some of these young people came from feeling unsure at the start of the project to performing their own music on stage in front of family and friends.
It has been a total privilege to lead this project and thank you to all who were involved! And I am pleased to say that it is not going to stop here. There are plans afoot for an LGBT youth chorus at Mosaic LGBT Youth Centre, supported by Sing Out and London Gay Men’s Chorus, and I hope to be taking the project to other groups around the country. I know there are many more stories to share and LGBT voices to be heard. Watch this space!
