Throughout! Houston's GLBT History
June 2−September 19, 2015
Special Hours June 27, open 10 a.m.−8 p.m.
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.
