A musical rainbow is set to be performed when the Norwich Pride parade takes to the city’s streets tomorrow - and everyone is invited to join in the fun.

Flamboyant Rainbows

Flamboyant Rainbows

I’ve got Pride, I’m Proud

Different but nice

I’m not the odd one out

I’m strong and pliant

A glittery drag queen

Our streets are ours and we’re free

I can be me

I’ve got satisfaction

and the right to exist

I can demonsteate my power

and my self acceptance

Stand up in the community

and sing it out you see

Our streets are ours and we’re free

I can be me

The Sing with Pride choir has created a new song with singer-songwriter Kimberley Moore especially for the parade. After premiering it at St Margaret’s Church of Art on Thursday, Sing with Pride is encouraging everyone to join them in song on the parade.

Steve Lunniss, chair of Sing with Pride said: “We can’t wait to fill the city’s streets with song. We mightn’t be as loud as the Norwich Samba band at the front of the Parade but we hope to give Pride-goers and Parade-watchers something really special to enjoy.”

Members of the Octagon Unitarian Chapel, in Colegate, will be singing with Sing with Pride today, as will the Proud Canaries who hope to regularly break into song with On the Ball City, and Kimberley Moore will be playing guitar.

Everyone is welcome to join in - the choir will be handing out song sheets and people are also encouraged to bring percussion instruments.

Sing with Pride is the choir from the LGBT community for everyone. The group will have a stall in Chapelfield Gardens tomorrow where they will be selling hand-made jewellery, and cakes and savouries to raise funds for the choir. Visit

• Norwich Pride is tomorrow 10am-6pm. The parade starts at Chapelfield Gardens at 2pm. For more visit
