Lady GaGa's record label has given a 30-man gay choir a major deal worth €1m.

The Brighton & Hove Gay Men's Choir performs hits by Neil Young and Radiohead and will release a new album later this year.



The 30-strong Brighton & Hove Gay Men's Chorus is currently working on its repertoire of alternative rock songs in a bid to move away from cliched gay anthems.



The deal with Universal Records - also home to U2 - is thought to be the first major label contract for a gay men's choir.



Also among their repertoire are songs by David Bowie, Ian McCulloch of Echo And The Bunnymen and The Enemy.
