Dear Y Alexander,


Thank you for your request, received by the Royal Conservatoire of
Scotland. I can report that RCS worked with LGBT Youth Scotland to deliver
workshops with Bachelor of Education Music students prior to 2017 (when
the programme was shared with Glasgow University). I'm afraid we do not
hold any of the content from that period.


RCS have no plans for the involvement of any of the groups specified in
our current programmes.


I do hope this satisfies your request in full, but please do let me know
if we can offer any further assistance.
