Throughout! Houston's GLBT History
June 2−September 19, 2015

The second half of the twentieth century brought unprecedented changes in the visibility and public perception of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender (GLBT) people in the U.S. Throughout! Houstonís GLBT History tells the story of the GLBT culture in Houston during this transitional time. The exhibit explores the diversity of a larger community made up of distinct cultural groups, each with its own identity and developmental history. The items featured present a bold look at the social, cultural, and political experiences of Houstonís GLBT community. The items are on loan to The Heritage Society from Gulf Coast Archive & Museum of GLBT History, Inc., and other local repositories and collectors.

Funding for the exhibition has been provided by the John Steven Kellett Foundation, Jay Allen, Will Merrett, and Wallace Saage. The Heritage Society is funded in part by a grant from the City of Houston through Houston Arts Alliance.
