Le Zbor


Inspired by the growing need for promoting lesbian-feminist sociocultural visibility group of feminists started an initiative to form an LGBTIQ choir. Our motivation came from former members of various singing choirs in Zagreb, who had stopped participating in their clubs due to prevailing homophobia and patriarchal/authoritarian leadership. We felt that the time had come for the city of Zagreb, the country, and this region of Europe, to have their first LGBTIQ choir. Read more on Last.fm
Inspired by the growing need for promoting lesbian-feminist sociocultural visibility group of feminists started an initiative to form an LGBTIQ choir. Our motivation came from former members of various singing choirs in Zagreb, who had stopped participating in their clubs due to prevailing homophobia and patriarchal/authoritarian leadership. We felt that the time had come for the city of Zagreb, the country, and this region of Europe, to have their first LGBTIQ choir. Our priority was to create a safe space where members of the LGBTIQ community could be free to express themselves.

The space would provide them with the possibility of using music and art to make their contribution in promoting diversity. Our idea was to create something completely new and different to be placed on the city's culture map. We feel that music as a media has the potential of reaching a wider range of population. It can get through those individuals who perhaps have not had the chance to encounter the cultural diversity and specificities of alternative lifestyles, sexual preferences, and gender identities. Music can open ways for questioning heteronormativity and other dominant discourses of our society, in a creative, non-explicit manner, and open to interpretation.

Certain types of music, that is, lyrics in combination with the right moment can transmit a strong political message, one that is coded in a language that everybody is able to understand. The message is thus uninhibited by empty phrases, introverted discourses and self-serving lecturing. Guided by these principles we have formed a choir club "Le Zbor" in October, 2005. The club currently consists of 10 members/singers. We are open to any individual who is able to work seriously regardless of sex, gender, sexual preferences or previous musical experience.

The organizing principle is democratic. Each member has equal say in selecting songs, visual identity and stage choreography. Le Zbor is financed by the members and it is completely independent.
