Northern Proud Voices are the North East’s first and largest choir for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans people (and allies). We sing all types of music under professional direction and we meet every Thursday evening from 7 - 9 pm in suite 4 at the Jurys Inn Hotel, Newcastle. 


We are a non audition choir so it doesn't matter if you don't read music or have never sung in a choir before. NPV is not just about singing, we are a diverse, friendly, social space for LGBT people. 


Please check out our website for more information:


or you can find our page on Facebook by searching for "Northern Proud Voices"


We are always looking to welcome new members and are particularly keen to increase our female membership. Do get in touch if you would like more information or if you have any questions by emailing



An exciting opportunity to share your story. Are you a migrant to the UK?

Would you like to tell the story of your experience?

To take part you need to be someone who migrated to the UK from overseas between 1935 and today and lives in the Tyneside area now. You don’t have to have come directly to Tyneside when you first came to the UK. 


The work will be exhibited at the Discovery Museum in Newcastle from early 2019.


If you wish to share your story please contact Jeremy Abrahams:

The LGBT Fed is looking for volunteers to be Regional LGBT Hate Crime Advocates.  We will be offering training around what to expect, how to deal with potential issues, how to sign-post people to expert advice, how to be an active listener, and how to look confident so that people will trust you and feel that they can rely on you. We will have some specific work around cyber bullying as this type of incident is becoming very prevalent and is even more devastating as it reaches into our homes. Plus we will have a workshop from the Crown Prosecution Service to advise us on what constitutes a hate incident and a hate crime.
