As part of LGBTQ+ History Month, Beacon Arts Centre is inviting submissions of poetry, short stories and artwork to create a digitally published zine around the theme of Unsung.
“Selective documenting of history and culture has been a pervasive issue for centuries, and the stories of LGBTQ+ people of colour are notably underrepresented; not least within the LGBTQ+ community itself. This marginalisation is not limited to race, as we have seen similar side-lining of disabled LGBTQ+ people, transgender people and women. To tell the story of LGBTQ+ activism, our triumphs and our tragedies, we should seek out and share these stories, as there is empowerment in representation.” – LGBT Youth Scotland
