Purple Friday is LGBT Youth Scotland’s annual fundraising day.

This takes place on the last Friday of each month of February to mark the end of LGBT History Month. Their annual fundraising day is an integral part to keeping their youth work services running across Scotland, including Dundee.

Here at The Corner, we stand against homophobia, biphobia and transphobia, and fully support our colleagues at LGBT Youth Scotland to help make Scotland the best place for LGBTI young people to grow up. During our staff training day on Wednesday 24 March 2021, we took part in LGBT Youth Scotland’s Pass The Torch Relay challenge where our Health Outreach Worker, Caroline reminded us all about the importance of Purple Friday and LGBT History Month.

To support the work that our colleagues at LGBT Youth Scotland do, you can visit their website here.

RE-FORMATION was a community art project celebrating and promoting young people’s ideas, skills and achievements as part of Scottish Government’s Year of Young People 2018.

It was a large-scale city wide partnership project, co-designed and delivered by young people from school and community groups. The project successfully transformed the pedestrian area of Reform Street, covering the cobbles with inspirational words and images to create a vibrant and uplifting atmosphere for the wider community. 10 community groups created individual designs that collectively carpeted the street.

The art installation was an ambitious and exciting display, demonstrating young people’s perspective of youth culture. The artwork included themes such as equality, diversity, ambition, inclusion and explored stereotypes and mental health.

The project culminated in a live event on Saturday 29th September and Sunday 30th September 2018 where participating groups transferred their designs onto the street as a temporary art installation.
