Home is where the heart is: LGBT migrants in Scotland
Exhibition: This exhibition displays photographs by LGBT migrants from Central Eastern Europe and the Former Soviet Union living in Scotland. LGBT migrants were invited to produce a photo diary on the theme of home. Their photographs, and their written thoughts about what home means to them, will be on display at Hillhead Library from 14 to 27 February 2017, as part of LGBT History Month Scotland. The exhibition is linked to the research project ‘Intimate Migrations’, carried out by our team at the University of Glasgow and funded by the Economic and Social Research Council.
Free and open to the general public during the library’s normal opening hours (Mon-Thu: 10am-8pm; Fri and Sat: 10am-5pm; Sun: 12noon-5pm).
Launch event: Don’t miss the launch event for the exhibition on 16 February, 6.00-7.30pm. The event will be introduced by OurStory Scotland and feature stories of LGBT people coming to Scotland talking about what ‘home’ is to them; drinks and nibbles will be provided.
The event is free but ticketed; please register here.
