2005 Approaches made to Outright Scotland regarding making html material available on the web    
early 2003 Ian Strang started to put some of the material on the web starting with an index of the archive.    
 

This site was started about the time of the LGBT exhibition Becoming Visible which was put on by OurStory Scotland in the LGBT Centre Glasgow opening on 2 November, 2002. A group of five people had got together to collect material for the exhibition. We discovered the existence of the Outright Scotland Archive in the National Archives of Scotland, affectionately call the Ian Dunn Archive after the founder of the Scottish Minorities Group in 1969.
