The Living Memory Association

Edinburgh's Reminiscence Project • Established 1986


Remember When: Edinburgh Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender history

A joint initiative between the City of Edinburgh Council and the Living Memory Association, the Remember When project was an oral and community history project which documented the lives and achievements of Edinburgh's LGBT people, past and present.

The project recorded the stories of a wide range of Edinburgh's LGBT communities and showed how the LGBT people have continually made a distinctive and valuable contribution to life in Edinburgh. By recording their experiences the contributors to this project have ensured that the long history of the LGBT community in the city can no longer be denied or kept hidden.
