"Mapping LGBT Scotland: report of Beyond Barriers survey of Scotland’s LGBT sector" - Nick Laird, Lynsey Morgan, Nikki Bell - 2004

To date, there has been little significant data collected about the activities, location or needs of LGBT community organisations or about mainstream agencies working with Scotland’s LGBT communities. In view of this, Beyond Barriers aimed to develop and conduct a research study to enable us to create a detailed map of organised LGBT activity in Scotland. Mapping LGBT Scotland is the result of this research.
