Historic Environment Scotland want you to share your important LGBT+ places
Every one of us has a place that’s part of who we are. If we don’t share our own stories, who will?
That’s why we need your help this LGBT History Month, to share memories and stories, good and bad, about the important places that make up the LGBT+ experiences in Scotland. Throughout February and beyond we’ll showcase your stories on the SUP blog.
We want to hear about places that are important in your LGBT+ story. It could be a past or present venue, a street, a building, an outdoor space, it could be in Scotland or somewhere that has shaped the person you are in Scotland right now.
You can send us your story as a piece of writing or as a photo or a drawing of a place, an event or an object, or an audio or video recording, or anything else you’re keen to share.
This is your chance to bring to light histories and places that aren’t always known or celebrated.
You can send your memories to firstname.lastname@example.org until Friday 15th February.
Please ensure that your contribution includes the name of the place and the date of your memory or story. If you’re sending a photo or drawing of an object or paper item, please also tell us if you can, who made it, the materials it is made of, its dimensions and a short description.
We welcome cheeky content but please ensure images are suitable for work. If it’s NSFW, we might not be able to share it. Be sure you have permission to share photos; you have asked permission of any people featured to share their photo and that you don’t disclose personal information about others in your story.
