But thankfully, many charities and support organisations have risen to the challenge.  This Pride month 2020, we’ve seen a range of invaluable LGBT+ resources and services shared online to raise awareness of LGBT+ issues, and to provide support to members of the community.

So why not check out these important online resources below that a few National Lottery funded groups have shared.

Pink Saltire – Podcast

Pink Saltire have created a podcast called ’50 Years of Rainbow Activism’, which features chats with LGBT+ people in Scotland over the age of 50 as they discuss their experiences and LGBT+ activism in Scotland over the past 5 decades.

The Pink Triangle Podcast: Episode 5 – Steven Pink Saltire Podcasts

In this new podcast series for Scotland's Year of Stories 2022, we examine how life has changed for LGBT+ people often on the margins of our community.Episode 5 features Steven, a 28-yr-old asexual man who lives in Fife. Steven talks openly about misconceptions about asexuality and how he feels that lack of sexual attraction is often misunderstood, even within our LGBT+ community. As a major social media influencer, Steven also talks about the benefits but also the challenges having an online presence can create.This project is supported by the Year of Stories Community Fund support from Event Scotland, National Lottery Heritage Fund and Museum Galleries Scotland.
