Proud City marks 10 years since the exhibition Rainbow City: Stories from Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Edinburgh opened at the City Art Centre.  The exhibition provides an insight into LGBTQIA+ history and explores the lives of people living in Edinburgh today.

Proud City showcases museum collections, items loaned and donated by the LGBTQIA+ community as well as a specially commissioned film exploring life in Edinburgh in 2016. The exhibition has grown from an outreach project with LGBTQIA+ communities in Edinburgh with support from LGBT Health and Wellbeing.

The project and exhibition has been funded by the Museums Association’s Transformers scheme (supported in Scotland by Museums Galleries Scotland).
