Here we present episodes, exchange experience and share stories. At events throughout Scotland, people from the LGBT community are given the opportunity to write or speak episodes in their lives. These episodes are added to our archive of stories of the LGBT community, that we can draw on for public storytelling, drama, exhibitions, research and internet publication.

Our collection of handwritten episodes is archived at National Museums Scotland in Edinburgh. They form part of the OurStory Scotland Collection in the Scottish Life Archive.
Our digital stories, including episodes submitted through online storytelling, are archived in the OurStory Scotland Collection at the National Library of Scotland.
OurStory Scotland is currently focusing on online storytelling through our Queer Distance project. You can submit an episode from your life online. We have developed an online form that enables you to tell of an episode in your life, perhaps a turning point in becoming who you are. You can submit your episode, or write a diary for a typical or special day in your life. Here is the online form:
