Introducing Out in Glasgow – a new LGBTI professional network

Out in Glasgow

Out in Glasgow is a new LGBTI professional network for Glasgow and the surrounding area.

The network hosts guest speakers on topics ranging from work within the networks to wider issues such as LGBTI parenting and what it is like to be LGBTI in various industries.

Speaking with KaleidoScot, Steve o’Brien of Out in Glasgow, said: “We look at the role each of us can play as individuals and organisations in supporting the local LGBTI community and charities.

“We provide a great opportunity for networking with like-minded professionals and individuals from different walks of life. It’s a great opportunity to get some hints and tips you can take home for both your professional and personal lives.”

This month’s event is on Thursday 28 August and is a chance for attendees to shape the future of Out In Glasgow. In the meeting, a discussion will take place on the network’s purpose, how it engage with its members and the direction for the future.

The network is run voluntarily by its members and o’Brien says it “wants to give all a chance to have their say on its priorities.

“We’re open and friendly and all are welcome!”

Out in Glasgow will be meeting at 18:00 to 22:00 on Thursday 28 August at the Brunswick Hotel, 106/108 Brunswick St, G1 1TF Glasgow
