LGBT & History workshop - Midlothian Heritage week

LGBT & History workshop

There is currently a void in Midlothian archives with little to no record of LGBT voices – we are looking to fill the gap!  Aimed at LGBT+ participants, this workshop will explore what archives are, why they are meaningful and how they can be used and created to reinforce a sense of value and identity. 

Come along to explore the history, memory and identity of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans + people in Midlothian, past and present, through creative activities and discussion  All necessary materials will be provided however please feel free to bring your own memories/ photos etc.  Refreshments provided.
