Inside Out & Proud

Inside Out & Proud exhibition went up at the Castle Mall Shopping Centre yesterday as part of the Pride 5 celebrations. The photos taken by Antonella Muscat looked amazing. I was delighted that the local papers sent Denise Bradley down to take photos of us with the posters - I love her work too. There's an article and online gallery of her pics on the Norwich Evening News website.
Here's my favourite one :

Hello Shelly Teddy!

I have got a mascot! A giant bear called Shelly Teddy created by Rach Nobes from Pawz4play. Shelly Teddy had her debut at the RAF Marham Children's Centre birthday party, with Rach inside and Stevie and I outside blowing giant bubbles. Her next gig is the Pride Picnic on 27th July.

OUT140 at the Hand-in-Hand Festival

Sing with Pride choir performed a suite of OUT140 micro-songs at the Hand-in-Hand national LGBT choirs festival in London on Saturday. Here's a review from John Flinders, accompanist to the Pink Singers:

"We had a wonderful day and the concert was a feast of variety from massed choirs to fledgling groups; in a way every performance was a high point, but for me, and for several of the people that I've talked to, one of the real standout moments was your OUT140 Suite - an inspired way of sourcing a text for a new work, a succinct, interesting and very singable musical realisation, and a witty and passionate performance. A wonderfully imaginative and creative idea, which was both incredibly personal to those who contributed texts, and yet spoke to us all and moved us, too. Thank you for sharing it with us."

Thanks to Kathleen from the Fourth Choir for the pic.
