LGBT HISTORY MONTH @ THE ART SCHOOL 19th February, 2019

February is LGBT History Month and we’re getting closer to the end but it’s not over yet!

At the beginning of the month we hosted the first of GSA Queer Society’s ‘Queer Soc Presents’ series which started with lecture by Mel Reeve on Bi History in the Assembly Hall. Mel is the marvellous human behind the @bihistory Instagram; a page that explores the history of bisexuality and highlights the role of bi activists in LGBTQ+ history.

Check out this article on Autostraddle where Mel discusses how her search for Bisexual History led to online connection and community, and keep an eye on Queer Soc’s page for their upcoming events!

Continuing our LGBT History Month celebrations this week we have two events supported by Queer Times School and the Gallery of Modern Art (GoMA).

“Developed over 18 months through a series of assemblies where participants chronicled their marginalised histories, Queer Times School is an art project that resulted in 10 prints depicting the obscured and overlooked experiences of LGBTQ+ people, to enter the permanent Glasgow Museums’ collection.”

As part of the public programme for the exhibition queer times school prints, currently on view at GoMA we’re proud to be present A Big Queer Powerpoint Night on Thursday 21st February @ 7pm with hostess with the mostest and headmistress of the night Claire Biddles in The Vic Bar. Expect an evening of queer learning in all its fabulous forms and manifestations!!

See here for further info and a full list of speakers on the night!

Saturday’s event is the 2nd instalment in a new daytime favourite exercising its right to identify as neither breakfast nor lunch! Drag Brunch @The Vic Bar runs from 11am until 3pm, is hosted by the inimitable Sgàire Wood, drag artist, model and lucky for us Events Convenor at The Art School.


Drag Brunch features piping-hot performances and some of the best brunch and cocktail/mocktail deals in town!

Get all the info you need to either soothe Friday night’s hangover or congratulate yourself on a good night’s rest here.
