Rainbow Chorus - Singing the Rainbow, with special guests
This bunch of song bandits claim to be the only lesbian, trans,
gay and bi choir in the whole of the South East. Fancy that eh!
They recently skipped their usual May concert to record a CD of the
last 15 years, featuring their takes on everything from Burt
Bacharach to Vivaldi. It's called Singing the Rainbow. How on earth
did they think of that eh? And did we mention there'll be a bar at
this event? Go.
St George's Church, Kemptown,BN2 1ED

over to Eat Yr Makeup! at The Cowley Club for a night of
punk/post-punk/new-wave mentalism afterwards? Or how about going
walkies to the Pride Dog Show, to find out who wins "Prettiest
Bitch"? Of course, the best shit's at the DIVA/Gaydar Girls Pride
