The organisation now known as Outright Scotland was founded in May 1969 as the Scottish Minorities Group, and between 1978 and 1992 was known as the Scottish Homosexual Rights Group. Outright Scotland exists to uphold the rights of Scottish lesbian, gay and bisexual persons, and its archives include records of its work in the areas of law reform, welfare and social activities. Included are the records of the Scottish Homosexual Action Group (SHAG) (GD467/8/1-11). SHAG was an independent organisation, separate from the Scottish Homosexual Rights Group. Its records date from 1987 to 1989 and concern opposition to section 28 of the Local Government Bill 1988 and the organisation of the Lark in the Park, Edinburgh, 1989.
