Kinder Stronger Better
#KinderStrongerBetter – Screening Premiere Event
Tuesday 31st March
Scottish Youth Theatre
105 Brunswick Street
In 2019/20 a group of LGBTQI+ community members came together to design a LGBTQI+ alcohol and other drug related health campaign.
We called it #KinderStrongerBetter
LGBTQI+ community members who designed the campaign all had their own experience of being affected by their own or someone else’s drug or alcohol use.
They used their wisdom and insight to design a campaign that they felt would be helpful to their LGBTQI+ communities.
We’re delighted to be giving our newly developed campaign videos their international premiere on 31st March and we’d like you to join us to find out all about it!
Attendance at this event is FREE and light lunch refreshments will be provided.

More information on the development of #KinderStrongerBetter
Developed in partnership by the Glasgow Council on Alcohol and Scottish Families Affected by Alcohol and Drugs, funded by the Glasgow Alcohol and Drug Partnership Ripple Community Activity Fund – this project is part of wider work being undertaken by the Glasgow LGBTQI+ Substance Use Partnership, comprising alcohol, drug, LGBTQI+ and family support services, as well as the NHS and academic researchers.
The group was set up in recognition of the health inequalities experienced by LGBTQI+ people around substance use (alcohol & drugs) and following on from research showing that LGBTQI+ people can face additional barriers to accessing drug and alcohol support.
