LGBT Youth Scotland Storytelling Cafe

July 11 @ 5:00 pm 7:00 pm

Come and join LGBT Youth Scotland and add your voice to the (Un)seen, (Un)heard archive – a first of it’s kind collection that aims to capture the lived experience of young (and formerly young) LGBTQ+ people in Scotland today. 

5pm – 6pm: We will run an informal drop in session between 5-6pm, where you can write, draw or record your own experiences using prompts aimed to explore your own personal experiences. 

6pm – 7pm: From 6-7pm we will run a longer storytelling/ oral history workshop where you can share your experiences as a group. All stories will be collected and preserved as part of the (Un)seen, (Un)heard collection at the National Library of Scotland.
