Concert at Cadogan Hall in London celebrates music of liberation and how popular music changed the world.
The London Gay Men’s Chorus (LGMC) will mark 50 years since the Sexual Offences Act 1967 with two performances of its new show, Agit-Pop, at Cadogan Hall in London this weekend. The 1967 Act saw the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality in England and Wales, and the start of the road to LGBT+ equality.
The LGMC present Agit-Pop on 9th and 10th June, featuring a range of music from artists including Erasure, Boy George, Kylie Minogue, Nina Simone, Lily Allen and Bronski Beat. In addition to the fight for LGBT+ rights, the concert will include songs that helped forward the causes of other minority or oppressed groups.
It’s been a busy 2017 so far for the LGMC.
Highlights have included performing at Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black’s wedding and a special performance to launch the Tate Britain’s Queer British Art exhibition. They have also recently returned from a tour of the USA alongside the NYC Gay Men’s Chorus and the Chicago Gay Men’s Chorus, during which they previewed much of their Agit-Pop material.
The boys are thrilled to bring the new show to their home town and it promises to be another hugely entertaining spectacle, as we’ve come to expect from the LGMC.
