“Glasgay! is not a festival for lesbian and gay men but for the whole of society. I believe it is a trailblazing event that will go from strength to strength.” (Michael Cashman quoted by Keith Bruce in The Herald 16/9/93).
“It’s about time [launch of Glasgay!] The more open we become, the less stigma we attach, the less struggle gays and lesbians will have to face in day to day life.” (Beverley Lyons, (student columnist) Evening Times 28/10/93).
“Glasgay! is a beacon of sanity in a hypocritical and naughty world.” (Ian McKellen, The Late Show BBC TV).
It was a marvelous party and I’m glad I was there.” (Kenneth Wright, The Herald 2/11/93).
The success of Glasgay! was so visible, so exhilarating, that before it was over the question was being asked, when will the next one be?” (Graeme Woolaston, Gay Times Oct 94).
