our best bits, the numbers, our achievements
The Glasgay! Festival is Scotland’s annual celebration of LGBT culture. It features work by professional artists, in theatre, film, music, comedy and the visual arts. It celebrates the progress of equality and particularly the issues and experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.

We celebrated the year by holding 2 separate seasons of events
We were proud to be part of the official Commonwealth Games Cultural programme

Our 2014 festival featured amongst others John Waters, Craig Hill, Stephen K Amos, Vikki Stone, John Lithgow, Alfred Molina, and a raft of emergent talent from Scotland.
