Calling all singers

Out Tonight is our very own gay and lesbian choir.  You don’t have to be a great singer and there is no audition process, you just have to love singing.  The choir meets every Monday night at ACON Hunter.  For more information send an email to newcastlegaylesbianchoir@hotmail.com

If a choir is not your thing, maybe you want to head to The Gateway Hotel every Friday and Saturday night for Karaoke and cash from 9.30pm.
