All Our Stories: Recording Trans Voices


The Community Archive and Heritage Group Scotland (CAHGS) are very pleased to be working with OurStory Scotland again, to deliver a workshop focussing on recording, collecting, and sharing stories. Queer lives are too often hidden in the archives, and OurStory Scotland rescue the evidence of our lives, ensuring our stories are recognised as an integral part of a diverse Scotland. Preserving this history will ensure a legacy for generations to come, keeping our stories alive.

OurStory Scotland is a community history and oral history charity founded in 2002 to collect, archive and present the histories of Scotland’s LGBTQ+ communities, this session will have a guest-facilitator and is for the trans community only. It will be an engaging and inspirational couple of hours in a safe space, provide you with the skills and motivation to create your own projects, and to take part in recordings for OurStory Scotland’s collection.

With generous support from the Queer Heritage and Collection Network, the workshop will take place in central Glasgow on Friday 24 February, 14:00-16:00. (Please note that the event location on Eventbrite is for illustrative purposes only; registered attendees will be sent more information.)

Travel bursaries are available, so if you are in the Highlands or Islands, Dumfries, or anywhere in between and are interested in attending, please do get in touch (by emailing and we will see what we can do to support!

This project has been made possible in part thanks to the Queer Heritage and Collections Network, supported by National Lottery Heritage Fund.
