While out and about in the city, Chris checked out the local nightlife and spoke to Katie, who moved to Glasgow from America 5 years ago, about what you can get up to when the sun sets and what it's like to be an LGBTQ+ person living in Glasgow

Chris also spoke to Ross who works at Katie's Bar to find out more about LGBTQ+ nightlife in Glasgow

And of course, we couldn't visit a city without finding out about one of the biggest days of the year for LGBTQ+ people, Chris caught up with Euan from Glasgow's Pride to see what we can expect from Mardi Gla this year
