For the 8th year running, Rainbow Chorus were delighted once again to join other Brighton and Hove LGBT choirs and musicians for the annual World AIDS Day fundraising concert “We all live together

Finola Brophy, our Chair said “As the only local LGBT choir the Rainbow Chorus is delighted to be performing for World AIDS Day alongside other Brighton choirs. This is such an important event in our year, raising awareness and celebrating the lives of those living with and affected by HIV as well as remembering those who have died. We’re delighted that all proceeds will go to Lunch Positive who do such great work.”

Gary Pargeter from Lunch Positive said “We’re overjoyed at the support from the choirs and music groups at this year’s World AIDS Day Concert. It means so much to have the support of so many groups and performers at this important event, and really proves that we are community in togetherness. Our forthcoming year at Lunch Positive will be spent helping a growing number of people and aiming to reach people who do not easily access services. The proceeds from this year’s World AIDS Day concert will make a huge difference in all that we do. Thank you from our members and volunteers.”

A full house joined us and the Brighton Belles Gay Women’s Chorus, Brighton Gay Men’s Chorus, Resound Male Voices and Qukele at St Mary’s Church Kemptown. The concert followed the vigil and reading of the names at the nearby AIDS memorial.
