A joint initiative between the City of Edinburgh Council and the Living Memory Association.


The words and sounds of some of the characters from the LGBT community. Sections of these interviews, both in text form and the audio recording in mp3 format within the site, are used throughout this site and in the book Rainbow City. Many interviews were conducted, most of which were recorded and then transcribed. The masters and documentation are now lodged with the City Museum. All the material on this website has been published with the kind permission of the individuals concerned which we are grateful for.
