This LGBT History Month we invite LGBTQI+ people to stride with pride and become history detectives. In these workshops, we’ll research and shape a new heritage trail, to be launched in the Summer.

Stride with Pride, Saturday 16th February, 23rd February, 2nd March, 9th March, 16th March, 23rd March, 30th March, 6th April, 13th April, 27th April, 1.30pm – 3.30pm, open to all LGBTQI+ people


We’ll look at the people, places and spaces that need to be commemorated as together we explore Glasgow’s queer past and write LGBTQI+ people back into history.

For this session on Saturday 27th April, playwright/director John Binnie joins us to lead informal writing exercises around subjects like mapping, locations where people feel safe, and places where communities come together. John is currently one of the artists involved in the Creative Communities: Artists in Residence project for the Calton ward.

These workshops will be facilitated by Mel Reeve.

Mel Reeve is an archivist and writer. She has an MSc in Information Management and Preservation from The University of Glasgow, and currently works as the archivist for Glasgow Zine Library, and has worked as a project archivist on several collections. She has written on LGBTQ+ history for Autostraddle and Monstrous Regiment, and runs the Instagram account @bihistory, exploring and raising awareness of the role bisexual people have played in LGBTQ+ history and activism.
