Board Wiki 
The Gulf Coast Archive and Museum of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual & Transgender History, Inc. is a 501-c-3 organization that was formed in Houston, Texas, by a group of concerned activists so that our collective histories could be saved - as well as be available for educational uses - through the utilization of a museum or similar venue. Although we have had to close the museum space, our archives are still available by appointment. Appointments can be made for access to parts of the archives through Judy by calling 832-722-5785. Additionally, we do have a few satellite exhibits throughout the city and arrangements can be made for temporary ones for special functions.

Our meetings are held the second Monday of each month at the warehouse, 6019 South Loop East (77033) at 7 p.m. Visitors are welcome.
