Call: The Queer Window Project

LGBT Youth Scotland are funding a new project by artist and filmmaker Lucy Asten Holmes-Elliott for LGBT History Month in February 2013.

“The Queer Window Project” is an exploration and celebration of queer Scottish identity formed from a series of illustrations based on photographs.

Lucy Asten Holmes-Elliott will carry out a series of photo-shoots, some studio based and some in locations yet to be determined. Some of these photos will form the basis of large-scale illustrations, created in Lucy’s distinctive minimalist line-drawing style (Click HERE for examples)

These illustrations will then be exhibited in the windows of different venues around the city of Glasgow. The remaining photos will be exhibited within a gallery as part of a larger exhibition.

Lucy is looking for volunteers who would be willing to be photographed for the exhibition. These will take place at a time and place that is convenient to the participant. Unfortunately, there is no payment for participation although it is a unique opportunity to become immortalized in the canon of LGBT History!

The project aims to raise queer visibility whist representing and celebrating the diversity within our community. There are no criteria in terms of looks, status, gender or background.


If you are interested, or would like more information please get in touch with Lucy on:


Important: participants are under no obligation if they agree to take part and may withdraw at any stage of the project.
