LGBTQ History Month has been observed all over Scotland this month, with events celebrating the culture, art, activism and history of LGBTQ people not just in Scotland, but all around the world! The theme for this month’s LGBT History Month has been ‘CATALYST: 50 Years of Activism’, to mark 50 years since the Stonewall Riots in 1969.
To finish off the month with a bang, today is Purple Friday! In the office today, we are all wearing purple to celebrate too. Purple Friday is named after the Purple in the Pride flag, which is known as the colour of ‘spirit’.
Scotland is blessed with many LGBTQ actors, writers, producers, poets, producers and other artists who have contributed so much to not just Scottish culture, but the arts culture all over the world! Big names like Alan Cumming and Carol Ann Duffy are both well-known household names and have contributed to the arts in a big way.
Here at Toonspeak, we will always be supportive and inclusive of our LGBTQ participants, regardless of their hopes and dreams. We welcome you to be yourself with no obligations.
