Since it fledged from its parent choir, Melbourne Gay & Lesbian Chorus, in 2005, shOUT Youth Chorus has spread its wings and soared.

The first LGBTQIA+ youth choir in Australasia, shOUT provides a platform for young people aged 18 - 29 to make their voices heard.

Made rich by the diversity and creativity of its membership shOUT brings its own unique identity to its musical endeavours  with a repertoire that’s surprising, dynamic and joyous.

As a performing choir, shOUT are increasingly in demand and have been invited to perform at many notable occasions including the Melbourne Writers' Festival and Gaytimes Festival, and most recently as part of Paul Mac's The Rise and Fall of Saint George at The Arts Centre.

shOUT’s growing reputation recognises not only the calibre of the music they create, but their importance as emerging leaders of our community.

Rehearsals are every Wednesday evening from 5:45m – 7pm in South Yarra.
Some shOUT members also regularly rehearse and sing with MGLC, our main chorus.


Membership of shOUT automatically entitles a singer to sing with MGLC with no additional membership fees.

For more information about joining shOUT and/or MGLC, please see our detailed "Join Us" FAQs.
