Pink Saltire was born from a desire to offer a louder voice to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people across Scotland – in both urban and rural communities. A voice which opens up debate amongst our community, helps inform us all on some of the most difficult issues we face and to act as a beacon of information for our allies and those outside Scotland who aspire to improving LGBT+ equality.
Our own research conducted in 2014 and 2016 demonstrated the community want improvements in media representation – 60% said LGBT issues were not represented well in the Scottish media; 86% wanted a national centralised news and information hub.
Scotland’s LGBT+ media sector is woefully under-funded and, until recently, had virtually no online profile. With 73% of respondents to our surveys telling us they turn to online news and information sources first, it was clear this should be the priority for Pink Saltire. We are proud to highlight the media outlets below and to support LGBT+ voices in Scotland.
