Brighton and Hove Gay Men's Chorus has received a £1m record deal from the prominent music moguls at Universal Records.

The Brighton and Hove Gay Men's Chorus, which consists of over 30 members, have been awarded a large record deal to the sum of £1m and will release their debut album on 3 October.

According to the BBC, co-founder of the six-year-old chorus, John Hamilton said: "Rather than being a gay chorus, we're a chorus of men that happen to be gay.

"When we started the chorus, part of what we wanted to do was to help to break down some barriers and misconceptions of what gay people are.



Hamiltons joint co-founder Jason Pimblett also said about the growing choir that includes the likes of barmen and teachers:

"We wanted to concentrate more on the music and not necessarily be pigeonholed into 'oh you can do that but you can't do that',

"There was room in Brighton for an organisation of gay men who wanted to sing, but didn't necessarily want to do the repertoire which you would normally associate with a gay men's chorus."
