Outside the Choir is a space of inclusion and cultural integration where diversity and mutual respect are a value. Through music and collective singing Fuori dal Coro supports the right of every person to the freedom to openly express their self beyond their sexual and emotional orientation, their gender identity, the static and immutable categories in which society and culture they tend to classify people. In the choir the voice of each person integrates and completes itself with the others creating harmony, all and all are necessary and contribute to a final result that is always more than the sum of each single contribution. The repertoire draws on modern and contemporary Italian and foreign pop music, with particular attention to pieces representative of a queer style. Outside the Choir he adheres to Cromatica (the national association of rainbow choirs) and Legato (the European network of lgbtqi + choirs).
