What the Press Said about us

Index to articles from the Glasgow Herald (now The Herald ) which reference LGBT issues. Material is posted with the permission of The Herald, for which I am grateful. These pages have been prepared from The Glasgow Herald Index* and from many other sources which contain press cuttings, such as the Outright Scotland Archive in the National Library of Scotland.

The Glasgow Herald index for years 1906 to 1981-82 as books can be found in Mitchell Library shelfmark ``G079 GLA''. The index for 1898-1906 is on microfilm in the library. There is no index after 1982 that I know of. (The catalogue entry online states that the only books of the index are held from 1906 to 1974.However the additional indices to 1982 are on the shelves.)

Links within The Glasgow Herald pages are generally to images in Google News.

  • Assistance with scrutinising the index right at the beginning was given by Jim Campbell and Neil Cameron when a small quantity of material was extracted for the Becoming Visible Exhibition at the Glasgow LGBT Centre in 4 November, 2002 put on by OurStory Scotland with the support of Diverse Artists and Glasgow LGBT Centre.
