Gay and Lesbian Singers (GALS) Auckland

GALS is Auckland's Rainbow Choir We aim to bring joy to everyone who hears us sing!


We support the Rainbow community by providing amazing music.

We are a not for profit organisation, with the majority of our funding coming from member subscriptions and concert ticket sales. We want to keep attracting new singers regardless of their financial situation. Donations help ensure we will never turn anyone away for lack of funds.

Funds donated here help GALS to:

- subsidise members who cannot afford fees for music, rehearsals, camp or travel.

- develop the choir further, to support trainee conductors or accompanists

We sing at many events for no charge, including the AIDS Memorial service, and at Auckland Art Gallery during Pride.

Your donations will mean our fabulous choir keeps getting better, with more opportunities to provide community enjoyment.

More about us

GALS are the Gay and Lesbian Singers, Auckland's Rainbow Choir. We are a non-auditioned community choir based in Auckland. Established in 1992, we were the first Rainbow choir in New Zealand.

We usually have concerts in May/June and October/November. We also sing at Rainbow events like the Auckland Pride Festival and World Aids Day.

We attend and have hosted Australasia's "Out & Loud" choral festival, uniting Rainbow choirs around the Pacific Region.

Members take New Zealand music to choral festivals, "GALA" in North America and "Various Voices" in Europe.

GALS has around 50 active members at any time and we estimate that around 400 enthusiastic choristers have passed through our ranks over the last 29 years.
