ABOUT QUEER TOWN
Queer Town, previously known as ‘Queer Club,’ was established in 2021 by dedicated local community members with a fervour for preserving, expanding, and celebrating LGBTQ+ culture. Our commitment extends from the shared heritage within Dumfries & Galloway to fostering engagement for all individuals within the community. Since its inception, Queer Club successfully orchestrated the month-long Dumfries Pride celebrations in 2022 and 2023, collaborating with over 60 partners, including local organisations, businesses, individuals, and enterprises, all rallying behind the support of Queer culture in the community. With an annual Pride programme of over 30 events over the span of 4 weeks locally, the collective has firmly embedded itself as a stellar example of LGBTQ+ activism within rural communities in Scotland.
With the backing of the Stove’s Open Hoose project, Queer Club maintained a monthly community space, providing a hub for everyone to connect. Fast forward to 2024, and the project has undergone a refresh, emphasising its dedication to further supporting and engaging the LGBTQ+ community in Dumfries. This involves fostering creative activities, engaging in activism, and strategically planning to enhance inclusion within the town while championing the development of homegrown LGBTQ+ culture.
