This insightful exhibition explores the people and places that have shaped Edinburgh’s LGBTQ+ community and their identities over the years. Personal stories and memories of Edinburgh residents – students, professionals, activists and creatives – combine to build a powerful portrait of Queer Edinburgh’s past and present, shedding light on issues of community, identity and belonging. The impacts of HIV and activism, and the developments of queer entrepreneurship and social life on Scotland’s capital city are brought vividly to life through a display of personal mementos – including clothes, letters and photographs – alongside historic objects, books and campaign materials.
Audiences are invited to delve deeper still by listening to an accompanying podcast ‘Queer Edinburgh: The Tapes’ and exploring a new digitally accessible map and walking trail ‘A Walk Around Queer Edinburgh’.
