In our Stride with Pride workshops, facilitated by Mel Reeve, LGBTQI+ people have been researching and shaping a new heritage trail, looking at the people, places and spaces that need to be commemorated. This August, join us as we celebrate the launch of this trail.

Stride with Pride Launch, Saturday 17th August, 1.30pm to 3.30pm, Meet at GWL

Hear from our History Detective volunteers as they talk about how they used the collections to research and create our new Heritage Trail map. We’ll start by exploring the archives at the library and then (from 2.30pm) you have a choice to stay and take part in a zine making workshop inspired by our collections hosted by Mel Reeve, or to go on a guided walk that celebrates Glasgow’s Queer past and writes LGBTQI+ people back into history. Everyone is welcome to attend the event and zine making workshop, however there are limited spaces on the guided walk so if you would like to book please email Emily on emily.ilett@womenslibrary.org.uk.


This workshop is open to all and is free to attend. This event is for open to all and is free to attend.
