The original idea for the Scottish Minorities Group
seems to have come from Ian Dunn's contact with members
of the North-West Homosexual Law Reform Commitee, in particular
Alan Horsfall. However, this is an unfolding story
as the archives are investigated.
Ian Dunn's links with North-West
Homosexual Law Reform Committee
Bill McConnachie (7/3/2006) tells that there was the
Bachelor Clan before SMG started. When it amalgomated a
number of members decided to set up an alternative organisation
called the Bachelor Club as a separate organisation.
There is a letter regarding
the Bachelor Clan and a form requesting
personal interests of a member applying there was an application
fee of £2.
