Houston LGBT History Timeline
while I expanded on some of it, this is primarily not my work, and the
foundation of it is taken
from the Houston
ARCH website, in an effort to give it more exposure. It is by gracious
of the researcher who prepared it, Jo Collier. Resources include Houston
publications, such as
This Week in Texas, Montrose Star, Montrose Voice, Houston Voice, Nuntius,
Pride Guides and Caucus Newsletters, and many more.
Links to Some Resources
1999 OutSmart did a wonderful year-long features on Houston history,
so I've done two special scans of just those sections. Part 2 also has
additions from history relation articles from 2000/2001.
Discover Your Roots: A History of the GLBT Community
also in August 1999, a group of activists and researchers put
together a discussion program and timeline booklet.
Speakers included a who's who of activists at the time:
Gary Van Ooteghem, Pokey Anderson, Larry Bagneris,
Kevin Davidson and Annise Parker
Scholars for this project included
Dan DiDonato, Chris Ehlinger, Johnene Horton,
Connie Marmolejo, and Bruce Turner
They broke their data into individual timelines in various catagories
with a linked bibliography for additional research
