For Glasgow Zine Library and Fest events, we use a sliding scale ticketing system for all programming unless otherwise stated. You can choose to pay £2, £4 to £6, or £8 to £10 for all events, workshops and talks that require tickets.

Please be honest with yourself and your financial situation. If you purchase a ticket at the lowest end of the scale when you could afford the higher ticket prices, it makes it harder for us to provide financial flexibility to those who need it.

How to estimate
what to pay:

I frequently stress about basic* needs and don’t always achieve them.
I have debt and it sometimes prohibits me from meeting my basic needs.
I rent lower-end properties or have unstable housing.
I sometimes can't afford public or private transport. If I own a car/have access to a car, I am not always able to afford petrol.
I am unemployed or underemployed.
I qualify for government and/or voluntary assistance including: food banks and benefits.
I have no access to savings.
I have no or very limited expendable** income.
I rarely buy new items because I am unable to afford them.
I cannot afford a holiday or have the ability to take time off without financial burden.

£4 to £6
I may stress about meeting my basic needs but regularly achieve them.
I may have some debt but it does not prohibit attainment of basic needs.
I can afford public transport and often private transport. If I have a car/access to a car I can afford petrol.
I am employed.
I have access to health care.
I might have access to financial savings.
I have some expendable income.
I am able to buy some new items and I buy others second hand.
I can take a holiday annually or every few years without financial burden.

£8 to £10
I am comfortably able to meet all of my basic needs.
I may have some debt but it does not prohibit attainment of basic needs.
I own my home or property or I rent a higher-end property.
I can afford public and private transport. If I have a car/access to a car I can afford petrol.
I have regular access to healthcare.
I have access to financial savings.
I have an expendable** income.
I can always buy new items.
I can afford an annual holiday or take time off.


*BASIC NEEDS include food, housing, clothing and transportation.
**EXPENDABLE INCOME might mean you are able to buy coffee or tea at a shop, go to the cinema or a concert, buy new clothes, books and similar items each month, etc.

This sliding scale model has been adapted from Leeds Queer Film Festival and Scottish Queer International Film Festival

We have a ramp for wheelchair users for entry into the building.

Our one and only bathroom is wide enough for wheelchair users and contains baby changing facilities. We also offer free menstrual products and condoms.

We have varied seating, offering a couch, an armchair, two beanbag chairs, and several stools and benches. We are happy for our visitors to have a rest, which includes lying down.

We have one floor lamp and one table lamp that can be used instead of overhead lighting, simply ask a member of staff.

All screenings will have subtitles unless otherwise noted.

Content notes will be produced and publicised ahead of any scheduled event that may have content that could be troublesome for any guests attending.

Glasgow Zine Library operates a policy of tolerance, inclusion and accessibility – any participants or guests of the library are asked to follow this policy. Anyone acting antithetically to our ethos and policies will be asked to leave.
