OUT in the Open Archive

26th February at 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Glasgow Women’s Library, and Women in Profile (the organisation that GWL grew from), involved LGBTQ+ people right from the start. Over three decades we’ve played our role as activists, delivered events, commissioned writers and artists, created life-changing projects and helped to impact on government policies to make Scotland better for LGBTQ+ people.

OUT in the Open Archive, Saturday 26th February, 1pm to 2pm, In Person at GWL, Free.

People will be able to sit solo, in pairs, or in groups/households of up to 4 people. We are unable to offer refreshments at this time, but understand that people may wish to bring their own water/drinks.  We continue to wear face coverings when moving around the building, but if you wish you may remove these while seated as long as social distancing is maintained.
